Full Description

Pictorial map of North American air routes operated by American Airlines and connecting routes, 59 x 75.5 cm, printed in colours, blank verso.

Illustrated with local produce (pickles in Iowa; furs in Louisiana) and numerous historical and cultural references: the Mayflower landing at Plymouth; ‘the best hunting in Mexico’; the home of the Dionne Quintuplets, born in Ontario in 1934. A fascinating mid 20th Century view of the United States and its neighbours, this example with a 1946 date code, which was also issued as a folding map for passengers.
