Clark, Willard F. (mapmaker).
Santa Fe. Santa Fe Chamber of Commerce. January 1, 1949. Map dated 1950.
Street map of Santa Fe, 14 1/2 x 18 1/4 inches on sheet 24 x 19 inches. Pictorial map of the region on verso 18 1/4 x 13 3/4 inches. Small tight creases from rolling (as it will be sent), light edgewear, 3 3/4 inch band of toning to upper edge well above map area; overall good clean condition. An uncommon publication, this two sided sheet appears to be held in just three US libraries, noted under two different OCLC numbers. The holding in the Santa Fe library is the only one to note the artist of the pictorial map, Willard F. Clark, who worked at Los Alamos for over thirty years as a machinist, but was also a talented artist. This map is dated 1950 and places Santa Fe in its surroundings, with Indian Pueblos, paved and gravel surfaced roads, natural features, and local attractions marked. The text flanking the map gives information under the titles "Land of Pueblos" and Native Mountain Villages. Los Alamos is represented by a mushroom cloud, and road closures on each side are marked: "U.S. project closed to public". The city map is based on the New Mexico State Highway Department Highway Planning Survey and includes a street index; the text above describes historic points of interest and lists a calendar of events. The copyright date for this map is January 1, 1949. Item #56642
