The Places You’ll Go

Paths of the Northwest Explorers, illustrated map by Lloyd P. Pierce for Ford Times magazine, 1962.

In digging around for some interesting stuff to put on 4 Color Cowboy (now at 500+ posts!), I came across these wonderful vintage map graphics from Flickr user matthunterross. The colors, the diagrams, the repackaged history – so much to enjoy. And, further proof that Ford Times was one of the greatest magazines ever printed.

This is a definitive case where one needs to click on the images to see the full details!

    In my treasure collection I have a Disneyland map/large-size poster from the mid 1960s when my sister visited the park on her world trip.

    Hey Walt – strangely enough, my collection of Disneyland paper items is missing a map – something I intend to remedy someday!
