Aeronautical Chart - USA Southwest 1950 Relief Map
Hey, I’m a geographer doing research on travel in the southwest at the turn of the century (the *last* century, 1900s). This map shows the southwest from Vancouver to Ensenada, in Baja California, and allows me to see the geography and geology of the areas I’m interested in.
And, it’s a beautiful map as well and a pleasure to just look at. Because it’s overlaid on a pilots map from 1950s, the cultural data does not get in the way of using it (town names, etc.). They are there, but unobtrusive.
The paper is heavy and well made - a joy just to feel it!
I bought the North American geological map at the same time. Same quality.
Either would make a great gift, mounted or not.
