Vintage 1948 Yellowstone Park Map

Lot 0145 Details

Description
This Lot Includes a Ca. 1948 Yellowstone National Park Map Humorous pictorial map "hatched and scratched by Jolly Lindgren" featuring the highlights of a visit to the park: hotels, peaks, lakes, etc. In 1933 the Lindgren Brothers of Spokane, Washington began manufacturing colorful silk-screened maps depicting iconic national parks and other scenic areas. With emphasis on both verbal and visual humor, they titled these inexpensive tourist souvenirs "Hysterical Maps," seeking to distinguish them from historical maps, a genre then in vogue. Their popularity with the American public for whom the automobile had brought freedom of travel prevailed for more than two decades. This Piece would look amazing framed. This Piece Measures 16" Tall x 16" Wide with a 15 3/4" X 15 3/4" Map.
