Description


An uncommon 1957 pictorial map of Africa issued for Air France by Dunlop. The attractive map highlights the cultural and natural wonders of Africa pictorially with red overprinting highlighting air-route operated by Air France. Red routes connect major hubs, with their airports noted: Yofe in Dakar, Robertsfield in Monrovia, Maya Maya in Brazzaville, etc. Although more beautiful than most, this map is part of a series of travel maps popular in the 1950s known as the 'Itinerarie Dunlop,' illustrating tours and air travel throughout Air France's coverage area.
