A Hysterical Map of the Yellowstone Park with Apologies to the Park

Yellowstone Satirical Map

Description

David Rumsey: "Color pictorial map. Humorous pictorial map "hatched & scratched by Jolly Lindgren" featuring the highlights of a visit to the park: showing hotels, peaks, lakes, geysers, etc. Relief shown pictorially and by spot heights. In 1933 the Lindgren Brothers of Spokane, Washington began manufacturing colorful silk-screened maps depicting iconic national parks and other scenic areas. With emphasis on both verbal and visual humor, they titled these inexpensive tourist souvenirs "Hysterical Maps," seeking to distinguish them from historical maps."
