Sanborn Fire Map of Part of Downtown Tucson
Detail of a Sanborn Map & Publishing Company map of downtown Tucson, prepared
in April 1883. Note the bullfighting ring, the bowling alley, brewery, billiard
hall and Chinese shanties. Building colors are keyed to their construction materials
- something of interest to an insurance company: gray is adobe; yellow is wood
frame; red/pink is brick. Reproduced from a mounted, colored copy in the Arizona
State Museum Archives.
