Description

Nice example of the second edition of this decorative pictorial map of Alaska, first drawn by Edward Camy for the Alaska Steamship Company in 1934.

The present example is significantly revised.

A fine pictographic map of Alaska, with a large inset of the Alaska Railways Route from Seward to Fairbanks (also showing the Richardson Automobile Highway).

Includes a fine array of whimsical caricatures of the Territory of Alaska, including a Siberian figure looking across the Behring Straits with the caption "Hi Ya Sam?," foreshadowing the comments of a certain vice presidential candidate in 2012.

Along the bottom of the map there are a series of views showing passengers enjoying the cruise amenities aboard the Alaska Line, which was then traveling between Seattle and Kodiak.

A fine map of Alaska from this remarkable series.
