16" x 26" map of Astoria. The date has been debated, and when donated to the Museum, "About 1890" was written on the outside. We used the city directories, the advertisement for "Judd Bros.," and the stamp for the "Astoria Abstract Title and Trust Co." to deduce that this map is from somewhere between 1908 and 1913. The Judd Brothers Clothiers are in the city directory from 1908 - 1918. The Astoria Abstract Title and Trust Company are in the city...
