Lively vintage pictorial map by Chuck Flachmann showing all that St. Louis has to offer, including various parks, public schools and "World's Largest Brewery" (here unnamed). Another edition of this map was published by Anheuser-Busch with the compass rose and scroll title "A Melange of Landmarks, Old and New of An Historic City" replaced by a compass rose with the beer company insignia at centre and the scroll reading "Visitors are always welcome at the Home of Budweiser.!" In the Anheuser-Busch publication the extensive buildings of the beer company replace the simple image of a horse and wagons pictured here. Additionally the lettering to the title text around the map is changed. Both maps are copyright 1950. The area shown extends at the upper edge to Affton, Maplewood, Clayton and University City.
