This is an entertaining and informative pictorial map of Louisiana by Ruth Taylor White from the 1930s.
Louisiana is said to have built almost half of the State from beneath the sea, by depositing silt brought from the North each year at flood time. It is often compared to the Netherlands, due to the numerous dikes. New Orleans is the most picturesque city, with a blend of French, Spanish, English, and American traditions. Low & flat, the state is crisscrossed with bayous, shallow rivers, swamps, & forests.
Within the compass rose, portrays a French chef holding a plate of food. Usual stereotypical characters from this period can be seen throughout.
