A good source for blueprint types of things is is the Library of Congress American 
Memory Collection. 

On the left side of the screen is a browse the collections button; select 
architecture , landscape. 

This one        "Architecture and Engineering ~ HABS/HAER ~ Multiformat ~ 
Built in America: Historic American Buildings Survey/Historic American Engineering 
Record, 1933-Present" 
might be especially helpful.   Here is the URL for that collection: 

I also have an activity on geometic shapes, which coincidentally I shared with one 
of our math teachers today. She plans to  show the pictures (which are primary 
source documents from AMerican Memory)  using a video projector in her 
classroom.  This will be an introduction to geometric shapes.
