Description

Fine large view of Downtown Seattle, published in 1971 and published by the Old Seattle Branch of Seattle-First National Bank.

At the center of the view is a map style image of downtown Seattle, extending north to beyond Pier 59, east to 5th Avenue and south to King Street.

Arrayed around the outer part of the map are vignettes of Seattle's Oldest Buildings, with the dates of construction, including:

  • Hotel Seattle (1889)
  • Maynard Building (1892)
  • Top of Northern Pacific-Great Northern Terminal (1906)
  • Smith Tower (1916)
  • Prefontaine Fountain
  • Union Station (1911)
  • Mutual Life Building (1897)
  • Pioneer Square (about 1900)
  • State Building (1890)
  • Yesler Building (1890)
  • Engineer 14XX (1914 front -1889 rear) Station 5

The key locates the names and dates of 31 other historic buildings.

Rarity

We located the 1971 copyright notice for the view, but no other record of the map's existence appears on the internet or in any on-line database.
