Rare pictographic map of Spokane County, published by E.T. Becher and drawn by local artist Carl Kragelund.

The map shows the Colville trail, Mullan trail, roads to historical markers and lively local vignettes.

Information on verso about points of interest, describes Spokane as a "city of 150,000 people".

On the verso is a mailer which is addressed from Mr. and Mrs. Becher to another couple and was evidently produced by the Becher's as a Christmas mailer.
