Dakin Fire Insurance Maps

Most American historians and geographers are well aware of the Sanborn fire insurance maps which document the landscape of hundreds of different cities. They are tremendously useful to a wide range of scholars and researchers. What some people may not know is that the Dakin Publishing Company of San Francisco also worked to create similar insurance maps in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The University of Hawaii has created this digital collection of 79 Dakin maps that document major cities in Hawaii, including Oahu and Honolulu. First-time visitors can browse through the maps at their leisure, and also use the search engine to look up features such as commercial businesses and parks. The site also contains a place where visitors can submit queries to staff members at the library.
