It's true, you Never Sleep!
thank you..
will go looksee..
aah...
my Dad owned it maybe 5-7 years later for a brief time.
great to see the actual address...is the street Carroll? hard to read. It was on a small street that crossed the median area of N Shoreline Dr. I think that street is gone, not on google maps.. now under the auditorium or those fountains near the Art museum I guess..
it says located at the Curve on n Shoreline...

Old data I saved:

In Corpus Christi, Texas, the public library has a digital subscription to TEXAS Sanborn Maps for its patrons. You have to go to the reference desk, show you are a card-carrying library patron (which usually means local resident) and they give you a password. Then you can access the digital Sanborn's maps FOR TEXAS ONLY from library computers or home computer.

Our local history room has a microfilm reel with the Corpus Christi maps and several other Texas cities whose names begin the with letter "C" on the same reel. Sometimes that is better than the digital image, sometimes not. Does not take wait time for each image to come up, but it takes hand-cranking time to run through the reel to the image you want.

And then there is the deluxe which... I don't know, maybe "serious" researchers can see them but they are, yes, restricted. Back in the mid 1970s, I got to handle the real original Sanborn's book of maps, seemed like almost 3 feet square, with buildings colored in to show type of construction, all in 1" = 50'. That was quiite an experience.

If you search the old Sanborn Fire Insurance maps on the Net:

Sanborn Maps of Texas - Perry-CastaƱeda Map Collection - UT Library Online

Yeah, I'm not sure how all the rules work, either, even having been on this site for a few years. Definitely appreciate your knowledge of Corpus and the area, though. Will be back there in a couple of weeks.

I am looking for photos of the old Legs strip club lady on SPID.

I grew up coming to CC and it was always a naughty thrill to see that wooden gal.

Thanks for any help you can throw my way.
