1918 Saginaw River Sectional Maps

Series of nine maps that follow the Saginaw River from its entry at Saginaw Bay to the south end of Bay City. These maps include street names, major buildings and business locations. Thee are identified for you to right of each map. As you browse them notice the terrain of the river's edge, many of the inlets have long since been filled in. Also, take notice of the many railways that serviced businesses during this time period and before the modern highway system.
