Description

Two maps in one, this unusual publication features a hand-watercolored map of Miami on one side and a map of the state of Florida on the other side. It appears to have been sponsored by the Miami Herald, and in large type above the state map, we read: “While on your trip through Florida, buy the Miami Herald each morning. You will enjoy reading this complete newspaper.” And yet the map has not been printed on newspaper paper; thus, it appears to be a separate issue.

The attractive Miami map features a variety of useful details for visitors to the city, including an explanation of its street system and rules for pedestrian traffic. Miami beach is characterized by a large number of golf courses.
