Houston & Other Places in Gorgeous Sanborn Insurance Map Titles

Insurance map titles and the word "gorgeous,"not what one would think.  But feast your typography-appreciating eyes on the design beauty of Sanborn Insurance map title pages.

I've been kind of obsessed with these images since being introduced to them by BibliOdyssey's blog post on them.  A google of Houston and Sanborn lead to Sanborn Maps of Texas (which are the source of the above images) from the UT Library Online website.
