The top of the page reads, "Real Estate Agents And Brokers, Spokane Falls / Investments Made For Non-Residents", below that it reads, "Issued As A Supplement To The Daily Oregonian". The sketches show various locations around Spokane, Washington in the 1880s such as: Looking Up Howard Street From The Island, the Residence of J.J. Browne, the First National Bank, the Arlington Hotel, the Bank of Spokane, and the Northern Pacific Depot to name a few. The bottom of the paper reads, "Spokane Falls, W.T. From Sketches By J.T. Pickett". The page shows fair condition with tears to the top and left side of the page, but is still readable and shows good images. The page is set on a large piece of foam board and is plastic wrapped. The page measures 19 1/8" L x 24 1/8" W.
