Statistical Map No. 9. Showing the Location of the stations of the Police and Fire Departments. City of Washington

By: Capt. W.T. Rossell  Photo-Lithograph by: Norris Peters Co.

Date: 1891 (published) Washington D.C.

Dimensions: 28 x 28 inches (71 x 71 cm)

A captivating map of Washington D.C. sowing the locations of police and fire departments at the end of the 19th century.  This map presents the United States capitol divided into seven fire districts with fire engine houses and alarm boxes noted throughout. Police stations and patrol boxes are identified in distinct blue markers. The central police headquarters appears to be conveniently located next to Judiciary Square.

This map was one of twelve statistical maps produced in an effort to present large-scale improvements in the infrastructure of the city since the Greene maps of 1880. Each map was drawn on an identical scale and included the prefix “Statistical Map No" before each unique title. Above the title is a full list of avenues names along with their width in feet.

This map and its counterparts offer a unique glimpse into the state of development in the Capitol of the United States just before the turn of the 20th Century.

Condition: This map is in B+ condition, originally issued folding with some separations along the fold lines. The map has been professionally linen-backed with any fold separations filled in by an artist's hand.
