Very light foxing to right front cover; overall unused condition; maps are clean and bright and would display well. One side of the sheet shows a street map of San Diego with lighthouses, U.S. Naval facilities, schools, sports facilities, etc. On the verso, the humorous pictographic map stretches from the San Diego Bay to a far horizon with San Luis Rey, the Palomar Observatory and Imperial Valley. Small pictographs show monuments and soldiers, propeller planes, sailing, fishing, etc. The small area map and the street map were prepared by Helen Hayes Dunham; the pictorial map is not attributed.
