The Waterways Map in the Great Hall of the Everett Station depicts a bird’s-eye view of the graphic juxtaposition of land and water around the City of Everett. A bronze casting of the Everett Station is located at its site on the map. The initial research to create a concept for the design of the floor of the Great Hall took Judith Caldwell high into the air over Everett. From a small plane three thousand feet above the city, she beheld an amazing pattern of land and water. The tiny boats visible from the sky that day are expressed as a collection of 29 historic vessels in cast bronze inlaid into the water portion of the map. The light that sparkled across the land and water is reflected by mother-of-pearl and colored glass in the richly hued terrazzo.
