Summary
Accession 39037 is a reproduction of a Sanborn Map Company fire insurance map of Richmond City. The map sheets are a graphic index to the Richmond City Office of Building Inspection Building permit application forms and architectural blueprints materials (LVA Accessions 37533, 30105, 30745, and 38536). It functions as such because buildings depicted on the map are annotated with their respective permit numbers for both original construction (marked in red) and later alterations or additions (marked in blue with an "A" following the permit number). This map depicts the city's boundaries circa 1908. Accordingly, South Richmond (Manchester) and portions of the Northside, East End, and West End are not illustrated. Researchers should consult the written index on microfilm (Richmond City Reels 193-204) if their property is not shown on the annotated map. The map is housed in the Map Research and Reference Room on the Library's Second Floor

  • Described
Biographical or historical data
Beginning in 1908, the City of Richmond instituted a policy of issuing formal building permits. Along with an application for a building permit, part of the process for approval of a building was the submission of a set of architectural blueprints and written specifications for the proposed project. These applications were submitted to the Richmond City Office of Building Inspection which was responsible for the review of the drawings and the issuing of building permits.
