Augusta, Maine. Maine State Highway Commission. 1954.
Detailed folded highway map of Maine, 8 ½ x 4 inches, unfolding to 34 x 24 inches. One corner of the unfolded map, 5 ¼ x 6 ¼ inches, has been cut away. It is in the vicinity of several detailed "urban center" maps, and was likely removed for convenience in getting to a destination. Map in very good clean condition. On verso of the highway map is an amazing colorful pictorial map of the state 23 x 15 ½ inches. The entire state is depicted, and illustrated with various recreational features associated with the state: fishing, hunting, trekking, camping, skiing, etc. Also depicted are the wildlife the state is famous for: moose, lobster, fresh water fish. An unusual and colorful map in very good clean condition, save for the corner area cut away for, presumably, travel convenience—not impacting the pictorial map. One corner of front cover of folded map suggests a burned area, with a cartoon image of a motorist shown tossing a cigarette out of his car...a clear warning regarding careless behavior leading to forest fires. Message beneath burned corner: "Don’t be a cigarette flicker!" Item #54762
