This is a beautifully colored large map of the Territory of Alaska from 1936 (23 years pre-statehood) advertising the Alaska Steamship Company.
The map includes two insets, one showing the area around Anchorage and the other, a more decorative map showing All of North America with links from many major U.S. cities to Alaska as well as a table of distances from Seattle (the hub of the Alaska Steamship Co.) to various locations throughout Alaska. Ports, cities and towns labeled in this map are all interlinked by lines of industrial transportation that include railroads, highways, and steamship routes.
The map is very pleasing to the eye as it includes vignettes of a seal, grizzly bear, and two totem poles flanking the map on either side.
Condition: Map is in A condition with a few minor fold separations and full margins.
