Series 1. Building permits and inspection reports, ca. 1905-1982

Series Scope and Content Summary

This series is made up of building permits and building inspection report cards from 1905 to circa 1982. The report cards generally show the building address, name of the building owner, name of the contractor, the date of inspection, the work that was done, and occasionally the architect. They also sometimes include a reel and frame number that corresponds to the microfilm reels in Series 2, which often show additional information. Cards from circa 1910 to 1972 are divided by those for new construction, additions, or remodel; signs; and demolitions. They generally have one inspection per card, and they're arranged by address on numbered streets, numbered avenues, lettered streets, and named streets. Cards from circa 1972 to 1982 include all types of inspections on one card per address; they also sometimes list older inspections. These cards are arranged in two groups: addresses on named and lettered streets that are organized alphabetically, and numbered streets and avenues that are organized chronologically.

Arrangement

Cards are arranged by street and address.
