Vintage 1940's Kroll Seattle & Puget Sound WallMap
This sale is for a Vintage 1940's Kroll Washington State Wall Map showing Seattle & Puget Sound titled The Evergreen Playground. It measures about 33 1/2" x 21" and I would say it covers pretty much all of the upper top left part of the state, and I love the Native American themed border with an old logging truck, a prop plane, an ocean liner ship, trains and all the things to do in our state flanked by two tall evergreen trees. It's in pretty good condition but there are a few small edge tears and edge roughness, there's some slight creasing where it was rolled and there's some tape on the back ( again on the edge ) and the part that was exposed when rolled up is age dirty, but all this would not be seen when framed ( It will be shipped rolled & slightly flattened ) Note : Here's a little something about the Kroll map Co. : Kroll's tradition of quality cartography began in 1911, when Carl Kroll acquired the longstanding Anderson Map Company and the Washington Map and Blueprint Company.
Since its inception, the company has focused on mapping for real estate and local government, custom mapping, and the publication of numerous general mapping products. Our roots extend back as far as the 1870s with the Anderson Map Company and the Washington Map and Blueprint Company, making Kroll one of the oldest businesses in the Seattle area.
This was another era, when maps were drawn with quill pens, map images were captured on glass photographic plates (and exposed to sunlight for printmaking), and field checks were performed on horseback.
