This is a reproduction of a striking map of the Territory of Alaska from 1936 (23 years pre-statehood) advertising the Alaska Steamship Company. The map includes two inserts, one showing the area around Anchorage and the other, a more decorative map showing All of North America with links from many major U.S. cities to Alaska as well as a table of distances from Seattle (the hub of the Alaska Steamship Co.) to various locations throughout Alaska. Ports, cities and towns labeled in this map are all interlinked by lines of industrial transportation that include railroads, highways, and steamship routes. The map is very pleasing to the eye as it includes vignettes of a seal, grizzly bear, and two totem poles flanking the map on either side.
What can be referred to as modern cartography has been around for over 550 years. Throughout that time an enormous amount of new land was discovered, cities were founded while others perished. International trade and travel became the norm, political borders were ever-changing, and numerous wars were waged. With all that being said, hundreds of thousands of maps were created that show such events and episodes in time.
