If anyone comes across Sanborn maps for Silver City, Grant County, New Mexico, please post a link, I've only found expensive commercial ones so far.
Thanks!!

You may have already found this one. It will allow you to look and zoom, print a small area. Other than that don"t know of any more.

Thanks, Sandpiper.
Yes, I have printed one of their maps out, came out kind of small. Then i remembered the old "windows Key & Print Screen" combo, pasted the little sections in to a reassembled whole in GIMP and Voila! A pretty fair image that's quite legible. I also made an appointment with a historian at the local museum to go through their early maps, and she mentioned that she recently got 3 binders of early Wells Fargo maps and stuff that I can get copies of, so that should be fun. Too bad the Library of Congress had a falling out with Sanborn before they got the rest of the collection online.
Thanks for the reply!
