Poland, Edwin C. (mapmaker).
Seattle. Kroll Map Company. 1927.
Folded real estate map 4 x 9 inches opening to 33 x 18 inches depicting the Puget Mill Company's massive land holdings, rendered in green, between Seattle, Washington at the bottom of the map and Everett, Washington at the top. There are three locations on the map identifying the company's Real Estate Offices, while platted developments of various sizes have been laid out, ready to accommodate new home owners. It would appear from the map that the entire development, collectively known as Alderwood Manner (together with Alderwood Manner Demonstration Farm District) was subdivided into convenient "districts," the names of which appear in red ink on the map. The Pacific Highway between Seattle and Everett is seen on the extreme right of the map, while the Seattle-Everett Interurban (defunct in 1939) is depicted centrally on the map, and State Road No. 1 appears on the left side of the map. At the bottom of the map is the Sand Point Naval Air Station on Lake Washington, which terminated operations in 1970. Cartographer Edwin C. Poland made a number of maps for Kroll in the 1920s and beyond. Light creasing along centre fold line; overall very good condition. Districts on the map with names printed in red, presumably subsets of the over-arching Alderwood Manner real estate development, are as follows: Martha Lake District, Bothell District, Shelby District, Inglewood Park District, and Edmonds District. Located on Lake Washington or the Sammamish River, some distance from Alderwood Manner, are three other platted areas belonging to Puget Mill Company: Lakewood Villa, Cedar Park, and Sheridan Beach.
