Did you see this article in the Denver Post about the Library's historical map collections? Trove of Maps at Denver Public Library takes explorer on historic trip (8/31/2010).

It talks about historic Sanborn Fire Insurance maps that show historical views of Denver and other places. "As buildings changed, the maps were updated with paste-overs.... It's like showing geologic layers of Denver."
