Map of the 1900 Storm Damage

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.
