Ran across this commemorative map in the hotel I'm staying at in Dallas:

I wasn't the only one who stopped to look closely at it. Quite a bit of interesting detail work. (oops - think I over-corrected the barrel distortion)

Nifty! Is that on paper? (It looks crinkled)

Sweet! I could possibly use this. Is there anyway to get it with the text being readable?

What looks like crinkles are actually all the little creeks/rivers shown - this is clearest sw of the word "Indian".

It is a second floor hallway (conference area) at the Hyatt Regency Dallas (http://dallasregency.hyatt.com/hyatt/hotels/index.jsp) and as laft night, I had checked out :(

The picture was hard to get because of the hall, and because it was behind plexi so the flash killed the first photo. I put the camera against the opposite wall and took the shot with the flash off (1/4 sec exposure) but it still ended up grainy due to the low light. Sorry.

No problem. At least you tried. :)
