This map was provided by Billy Suitor who has the original. The scans were pieced together. This was published first in 1927, by the Texas State Agricultural System .This copy is from the 1939 reprint of the 1927 edition. I have added the arrows as not all the names were easy to read in the scans. The red Circles were already on the original copy. The black dots are are buildings along the road.It is invaluable as to the exact location of schools and homes. Save the images on your computer and then enlarge if you cannot see the details . I can also send an unmarked map of an area if you are able to receive large images in the email.
