I think the closest thing to an Atlas you'd find would be reference copies of the City Directory (yearly publication, most libraries have them for their city and probably have archives.
Here's a couple other ideas that worked OK for me. Historical societies are probably your best resource, they'll have everything from old maps to "port view" or birds-eye drawings and best of all, they are usually staffed with really knowledgeable folks who love to discuss the older aspects of the city. There are often websites (just search the "old time ?????" where the question marks are the city name) either independent or often run by historical societies. Another of the best resources is just talking to older folks but as we are looking for stuff often well over a century old the living memory can be pretty sparse.
One resource that is really overlooked and can be fun is old phone books - no, not the phone #s - the "yellow pages" would give you the addresses of plenty of consumer businesses and in the first few pages of many (most?) of the old phone books had a simplified map of the city. Many libraries have (or had, i hadn't used this technique it about 10 years) archives of phone books either actual copies or microfilm.

Just a few thoughts, Best Wishes

Folks, what happened to our previous conversations with other members since this new forum was launched? I can't seem to find those PM messages. Can they be retrieved?
Thanks, Ken.

Hey CJM, thanks for sharing that nostalgic picture. My avatar picture was taken on the way home from Hilton Head Island in the early 2000s.
I believe the site was still standing (fenced off) around 2015.....HH
