An interesting manuscript map of High Island, Texas, one of the first big oil strikes after Spindletop. Showing drilling blocks in the process of being developed.
The map includes notes about a spring and "foot ridge" (?)
The map offers an opportunity to explore the relationship between early drilling leases, land ownership, and geology.
Manuscript map in pen (in two or more hands) on wove paper. Moderate surface soiling throughout. A couple of edge tears and some edge wear.
