An attractive 1958 map of Morocco.


This 1958 map of Morocco captures the essence of a nation in the midst of transformation, navigating the post-colonial era. The delineated boundaries show Morocco’s national frontiers, with particular attention to the disputed Western Sahara region, which would later emerge as a point of contention between Morocco and the Sahrawi people.

Major cities such as Casablanca, Rabat, Marrakech, Fes, and Tangier are key nodes in the landscape. The vast expanse of the Atlas Mountains, the northern Rif Mountains, and the southern stretches of the Sahara desert defines the country’s topography. Transportation links, including major roadways and railways connecting urban centers like Casablanca and Marrakech, are highlighted, along with significant ports like Agadir and Tangier, underscoring Morocco’s maritime heritage.

The map’s legend is trilingual: French, English, and Spanish.
