The Lindgren Brothers Pictorial Map Centered on Boulder Dam and Las Vegas
"Hatched and Scratched by Jolly Lindgren," this comic pictorial map is full of puns and comic vignettes related to the region centered on Boulder Dam and Las Vegas.
The map shows the Grand Canyon, Death Valley, Cedar Breaks, Bryce Canyon, Zion and Kaibab National Forest.
The Lindgren Brothers issued a number of other silly whimsical maps of national parks and other parts of the West, beginning in 1933.
In addition to this map, the Lindgren Brothers issued maps for the Grand Canyon in 1936 and 1940:
- A hysterical map of Grand Canyon National Park; a mile deep and ever so wide; where Mother Nature started from scratch.
- A hysterical map of Grand Canyon National Park; a mile deep and ever so wide; a swell place to throw your old razor blades.
The present map is among the rarest of all maps by the Lindgren Brothers.
This is the first example of the map we have ever seen. OCLC locates at copy at UCLA.
