Description

Fine seperately issued topographical birdseye view of the Greater Lake Tahoe Region, oriented with east at the top, based upon original artwork by Gerald A. Eddy.

The map extends from Donner Pass Summit at lower left corner to Blue Mountain at lower right, from Reno to Walker Lake and notes that it was "Painted by Gerald A. Eddy, Glendale Calif." Topographical features such as mountains and lakes, many ski areas etc are named, such as Squaw Valley Ski Area, Tahoe City Ski Hill, Bijou Ski Hill Golf Course.

While original utilized by the Lake Tahoe-Sierra Chamber of Commerce to illustrate a promotional pamphlet, this is a scarce separately issued example.

Gerald A. Eddy did several maps of the Lake Tahoe area, as well as other illustrations, although he is perhaps best known as the illustrator of several interesting historical maps of the Los Angeles area, including The old Spanish and Mexican ranchos of Los Angeles County.
