That old bird's eye map has always fascinated me. Interesting how there used to be a wye in the NP railroad tracks just south of the depot. Also interesting to see the brewery on 3rd and Atlantic. I wonder how long it took the artist to do this map.

The company that did them sold them all over the west. Lots of new towns loved those maps. I love all the details. My house, by the way, is on it.

ETA: I used to have the original Northern Pacific plat map in my old office but I have no idea what happened to it. If I had realized how much stuff was going to disappear, I would have nicked some of it.
