Robinson New Orleans Fire Insurance Atlas Collection
Scope and Contents
This collection includes one fire insurance atlas for the city of New Orleans, Louisiana, which covers the entire city at the time of 1883 and illustrates blocks with buildings of individual properties. Buildings are color coded to indicate which materials were used in their construction. Notes and symbols provide additional information. Atlas was drawn on a fairly small scale, resulting in a sacrifice of detail. Information in the Robinson is not always current to 1883. It was published as Atlas of the City of New Orleans, Louisiana. New York: E. Robinson, 1883. The atlas was based on surveys by John F. Braun, New Orleans surveyor and architect, compiled by civil engineers E. Robinson and R.H. Pidgeon. Engraving was done by A.H. Mueller of Philadelphia.
