The other day my Uncle asked me to look at some of Grampa’s old maps and scan some of them for him. The maps were huge and too big for my scanner so I took photos of some of them. In the process I became fascinated by these old maps and brochures I found too. So I tried to take photos of them and downloaded them. They are below. If you click on them you can get enlargements.
Here are the maps of the area that I have dates for:
1939 Seattle Aeronautical Chart
Washington Points of Interest and Touring Map Chevron 1964
Washington Points of Interest and Touring Map Chevron 1964 close up
1972 Relationship of Plant -1 Plant-2 Renton Plant to Metropolitan Seattle
Here are the ones I do not have dates for (but would like them if you can figure any out for me):
Shell Pacific Northwest Map
Shell Pacific Northwest Map #2
Mobilgas Seattle Map
Metsker’s King County Map
Kroll Seattle Map
Seattle Welcome Guide
Your Guide to More Highlights of Scenic Seattle
Downtown Guide Map
Sightseeing Guide to Seattle
Shell Street Map of Tacoma
Shell Street Map of Seattle
There is also this interesting Eastside brochure from 1979:
I found this Welcome to Davenport brochure. This is presumably from 1965 when my grandparents and uncle visited us just after I was born.
I am curious what some of these marks on the maps are referencing.
And I found this Rock Island Line Time Tables brochure from 1964-1965, Maybe they took this train on that trip?
Last, but not least, I found copies of the 1965 and 1966 Washington State Fish and Game regulations. Here are the 1965 for selected counties:
1965 Game Fish Seasons and Catch Limits
1965 Game Fish Seasons and Catch Limits Island and King Counties
1965 Game Fish Seasons and Catch Limits King and Kittitas Counties
1965 Game Fish Seasons and Catch Limits San Juan and Skagit Counties
