This 1889 engraving shows the town of Astoria looking seaward and looking inland, with good views of the docks and harbor. Astoria, Oregon's oldest city and the oldest American settlement west of the Rockies, was established as a fur trading post by John Jacob Astor in 1811. The Clatsop County seat was moved from Lexington to Astoria in 1856, and as you can see in the engravings, by 1889 the city was a large and prosperous seaport. -- This engraving is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
