Giant 1940 Wooden Model Joined Together Digitally

Found this interesting digital map of San Francisco in the David Rumsey Map Collection.  It was a massive wooden model of San Francisco that has not been on display in one piece since 1942.  The 158 pieces that create a 42×38 foot model of the city were digitally photographed and pieced together to create one big mosaic image.  The model represented the city as it was in 1940.  Check it out!
