This humorous pictorial map of San Diego was prepared for Lowell E. Jones in 1935. The map covers San Diego County, from Oceanside to Descanso and from Palomar Observatory to Palm City and Point Loma. It features numerous pictorial vignettes illustrating the cultural, military, and sporting life of the San Diego Bay area and was prepared as part of a pamphlet commissioned to Lowell. E. Jones to promote tourism to the San Diego area. There are at least two states of the map, one with the title Recreational Map of San Diego City and County and another, the present example, lacking the title. It is unclear which is earlier.
Lowell E. Jones (fl. c. 1935 - 1957) was a Los Angeles graphic artist. He drew pictorial maps and sold them at tourist locations around Los Angeles for twenty-five cents each. Learn More...
