Lindsay, Charlie (mapmaker).
San Francisco. Tarantino's. No date. Ca. 1950?
Color pictorial / pictographic map on thick textured paper 20 x 13 inches. Light toning to edges, corners very lightly bumped, very good bright condition. A strikingly simple, colorful pictorial map of the Bay Area from Mill Valley to Burlingame with Berkeley, Oakland and Alameda across the Bay (Treasure Island depicted as a Naval Base). Pictographs with comic figures are scattered over the map showing places to visit and activities. Beneath the cartouche is noted: "Tarantino's Restaurant, Bar and Gift Shop is owned and operated by "The Two Irishmen of Fisherman's Wharf" Dan Sweeney Jr. and Gene McAteer." The restaurant was opened in 1946. This image was used on the restaurant's menus, but this copy was never folded and seems to have been issued for display. Very good, clean condition. Item #54992
