    NYC Subway map, 42 x 23.5 cm, printed in colours, folds as issued, blank verso.

    This wartime example is a ‘special’, commissioned to show the location of the New York branch of the Union Jack Club, and distributed to British sailors on shore leave. Hagstrom and Nostrand produced similar red-bordered Subway maps in the 1940s, although Hagstrom’s was chosen as the first official map of the network.
