      There's a story from the Forbidden Zone about Yankees
      capturing a map of Confederate positions from a Confederate
      officer and copying it by a "fast" photographic process:
      They simply laid the map over a photographic plate, out
      in the mid-day sun. When the plate was developed, they
      had a negative of the map, and of course multiple copies
      could be made from the one exposed plate.
