1930 Automobile Roads Between USA & Canada - Original Vintage Map
Shop on Etsy


A great & well preserved map from the dawn of the automobile! This map is surely one of the first international maps made for the use of automobiles only & displays the major road connections between Canada & United States on the Atlantic side. The poster is also known as the "Atlantic Sheet" where the national routes are shown as well. This map was made long time before the Interstates Highway System was proposed by President Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1956, & completed 35 years later. The network has since been extended, & as of 2012, it had a total length of 47,714 miles (76,788 km). This is by far one of the most interesting road maps I have come across (and I use to study cartography) & even while the GPS has been available for a long time this map will be great as a special & unique wall decor. Artist: Natural Resources Intelligence Service. Director: F.C.C. Lunch Print: Lithographic Map Print Dimensions: 30 x 40 in (76 x 102 cm) Condition: Good condition - light signs of use, a smaller tear in the top & some ageing related defects like tiny spots & discoloration - please see pictures.
