That dimension is the whole picture width not just the map width. Forget
that dimension and just deal with the scale 1/80000. There is a scale on
the map showing 1 mile and 1300 feet. Draw a line 1 mile long or 13000
feet. Match line with scale.

I don't understand how you got to 36.5"... According to Photoshop and
XnView on my system, the original image is 7316x6416 pixels at 150dpi.
That's roughly 48.77" by 42.77". What software gave you a 36.5" width,
what is it telling you are the resolution and pixel dimensions?

In manipulating the original image, you seem to have enlarged it to
double the size. When I download the LOC map the width of the image,
including the full borders is 36.5", but the width of your resultant
with the outside borders clipped is 44.67".
