Queen Anne Stairs Map

Mr. Horton liked to walk around the Queen Anne neighborhood. While doing so, he frequently 'found' public stairs he'd never seen before. He would excitedly relate to his friends the thrill of finding new stairs, and they generally rolled their eyes and answered, "Why don't you just go out and map them all?".

Map of The Pedestrian Public Stairs of Queen Anne Hill is available in a folded version and in a poster version.
