A rare survival -- Sanborn's Fire Insurance Atlas of Montecito, California
First published in 1918, the atlas consists of a key sheet and 13 maps of various parts of the community of Montecito, just south of Santa Barbara.
This example has been updated through March 1956, with the prior update being October 1940, as noted on the pastedown on the key sheet.
A detailed look at one of the most affluent communities in America, and a community recently ravished by fire and later mudslides. We acquired this atlas shortly before the 2017 fire season, so we do not believe the damage to be related to the most recent fires and flooding.
