Description

1970s reproduction by Seattle-based Kroll Map Company of the famous Augustus Koch bird's-eye view of Seattle.

Seattle is shown as seen from the Southwest, centered on the Capitol Hill and Volunteer Park area, with Lake Washington, Mercer Island, Kirkland, Union Bay, Green Lake, and Ballard on the Horizon. 

The view notes that it was issued "Eighteen Months after the Great Fire," of June 6, 1889, which destroyed virtually all of Seattle's wharves and over 30 square blocks of the city.  The Key below the map locates approximately 130 points of interest.

The view provides a fine depiction of the waterfront commerce of Seattle, which is concentrated around Elliott Bay.

Condition Description
Minor wear at the edges. Evenly toned.
