Vintage Apartment Floorplans

If you've played Chaosium's "Call of Cthulhu" it's likely your character has visited more than a few urban flats, from cramped hovels to high end luxury suites.  If you've wondered what they were actually like you'll want to visit the New York Public Library's digital collection.  The New York City Apartment Buildings archive not only has dozens of apartment floorplans, but a look at the hardware and features they were outfitted with.   The collection includes builder's catalogs with the actual plumbing, lighting, and decorative fixtures used in vintage buildings.
