Map #456B The Galveston Storm. Saturday, September 8, 1900. Anonymous. Galveston, 1900. Scale indeterminable. 36.5 x 44 cm.
This map graphically
shows the levels of damage Galveston sustained as a result of the hurricane.
The beachfront (the shaded portion of the city closest to the Gulf of Mexico)
was completely lost. A swath of complete destruction, roughly bounded by 8th
Street (east), 46th Street (west), and Avenue O (north), was the next level.
Few buildings survived there. A zone of partial destruction, including the waterfront
and the downtown area, occupied the innermost portion of Galveston.
