Owens, Charles H. (illus).
New York. Panama Railroad Company. 1925.
Black and white pictorial bird's eye view style map, 27 1/2 x 44 inches, folded as issues, little light wear to edges when folded, 'Panama Canal' written on verso outer fold, overall very good condition. "Mr. Owens was the first civilian artist to fly over the Canal Zone. This bird's-eye view of the big canal, with its inserted sketches of the locks and interesting canal zone scenes is the result." An extremely detailed and absolutely fascinating bird's eye view map of the Panama Canal area, with many inset details of the workings of the canal and local sights. Clearly the accuracy of the map was deemed an important selling point as the endorsement from George W. Goethals the Consulting Engineer on the Canal suggests. Item #35589
