Decorative promotional birdseye view of Spokane Falls, prepared for the Northwest Industrial Exposition.

In October of 1890, Spokane hosted the Northwest Industrial Exposition, just 14 months after the vast majority of the Spokane business district had burned to the ground in a major fire. The event was primarily a northwestern exposition, drawing industrial exhibitors from mostly the neighboring states but also from as far away as Minnesota. This map was loosely bound within a hardbound promotional brochure from the exposition, and was apparently intended to be removed and framed.

A number of banners highight the regions many resources and products, including mining, agriculture, and Tobacco Plantations. The Union Pacific, Northern Pacific and SF&N Railroads are all shown, as are the bridges across the river, among other notable features.
