Grampa Stone’s Old Maps and Brochures

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

    On the Davenpoer map, your Dad marked where he went to school (Palmer), where we worked, (Griggs Piano and Sears), and where his friends lived (Warren and Ned). Yes, your Grandparents and Craig took the train to Davenport. The Mississippi was flooding at the time, wnd some of the track was underwater!
