May know where I can get more information on it.

This map is a "litho usa far west Seattle" map
It is copyrighted by the creator  F. Stanley Piper dated 1934
On the map is written "this cartography is lined and colored to the good times that will greet you when you come to Puget Sound".

If anyone has interest/thoughts on how I might get more information PM me and I can send a few photos of it.  I don't do flicker so cant upload here and not sure I want to.  I have learned the basics on Mr Piper..but cant find any reference to this map.  I have located one other map by him. 
All to say one of u wizards out there might have the knowledge I am seeking.   Thanks

Designed by local architect F. Stanley Piper, the McMurtrie Auto Court was built in 1932... from this site: http://bellingham.maps.arcgis.com/apps/MapJournal/index.html?appid=99f8ff0a78ee478eaaafee32e6d47698

He designed the Herald Building, also in Bellingham: https://npgallery.nps.gov/GetAsset/9288c4a0-c1bb-4af0-856d-755e4e3a61e5/

Hi, yes I have read about the buildings he helped design/build, just can't find anything about his map drawing and having them printed.   The one I have is quite unique and fun.  Not sure how to research it.

WSU has a really great historic map collection. I don't have time to dig now but they may have more info if they have that map in their collection.

Wow, no kidding! Including old (circa 1900) USGS topo maps! Thanks for posting!
