These thematic maps show the numbers of deaths within each city block from such illnesses as Lung Disease, Pneumonia, Typhoid Fever, Scarlet Fever and Malarial Fever. The number of deaths between the races is shown in different colors as described on the first sheet: "Combined Numbers Show Total Deaths on Each Square. Deaths of White Persons are Indicated by Numbers in Red. Those of Colored Persons by numbers in Blue". Apart from the grim statistics, these maps present fine detail along the Mall and the beginning subdivisions in the open spaces to the north. Each uses the same base map.
Each is folding as issued and flawless save the first which has a few small holes along outside fold otherwise this map is also fine.
