hope the Society can be of some assistance to my on-going research project on the Alamo and Alamo Plaza.
The first Sanborn Insurance maps of San Antonio were issued in 1877, and copies of sheets 1 and 2 (of 4) are available on line in the Perry-Casteneda collection, which I'm sure you are very familiar with. I can't find a repository with the critical (to my study) sheet 4, which contains a "special" on the Alamo. Even the present holders of the Sanborn name and archives don't have a set of the 1877 issue, and inquiries to the National Archives seem to only refer back to the P/C collection's half-set.
Do you know of a collection, private or institutional, that has the complete set of 4 sheets of the Sanborn 1877 map of San Antonio, that would be willing to let their examples be copied or studied?
Any assistance you can provide would be gratefully appreciated.
