Description


This is a c. 1973 Monroe County Advertising Commission map of the Florida Keys. The map marks stops along the Overseas Highway from Ocean Reef to Key West and identifies all major Keys. Illustrations of a heron, an egret, a pelican, and two terns underscore the birding opportunities of South Florida. Sportfish, including marlin and sailfish, adorn the bottom border and promote 'the world's finest fishing waters'. Vignettes of fishing boats, golfers, water-skiers, snorkelers, and shipwrecks highlight the many activities available to vacationers in the Keys. A scroll occupies most of Florida Bay and names the forty-two of the bridges on the Overseas Highway and provides distances.
