Description


This is a National Development Bureau road map of New England and Ontario, Quebec, and the Maritime Provinces. Depicting the region from Georgian Bay to the Atlantic Ocean and from Iroquois Falls, Ontario, to Washington, D.C., the map highlights road connections between the two countries. Red lines representing major highways meander their way across the continent. Green splotches marking provincial and national parks in Canada stand out against the multicolored Canadian provinces. Dashed lines trace sea lanes between New York, Boston, and Philadelphia and New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.
