Yeah, it's pretty great. The original version is even bigger. If I understand right, it's comprised of superimposed elements from three old Watson maps, apparently, mostly the 1903 & 1906 ones. I think it deserves its own article like we did for the Wellge map. (What's going on with that extra land shown in Pensacola Bay? Were they planning to do more land reclamation there?) --Admin 07:29, 28 February 2008 (CST)
Yeah, the extra streets south of Cedar are crazy! And O Street/Pace is labelled "Pettersen" and the streets west of O have names! LOL! dscosson ··· talk 12:24, 29 February 2008 (CST)
Also Lakeview Ave is called Stoddart St... Lakeview at one time went by Sierra St. and 12th Ave went by "Stoddart Ave" apparently, but I did not know Stoddart name was ever applied to Lakeview. dscosson ··· talk 12:31, 29 February 2008 (CST)
What this map calls Florida Square nr 12th and La Rua is now Lions Park. This map's "Havana Square" is Miraflores Park. Neato! dscosson ··· talk 12:44, 29 February 2008 (CST)
