Heather Johnston, Alutiiq

Map Origin: From United States Fish Commission VOL. XII 1892. Washington Government Printing Office. 

This map is one of the earliest efforts by the United States Government to produce, what we now call a Nautical Chart.  This is a maritime map of Alaska, in this case the treacherous Northern Pacific Ocean and Bering Sea as they occur along the Southwestern portion of Alaska.
