PRINTED ALMOST A CENTURY AGO!
AN ORIGINAL 1928 MAP OF COOK COUNTY ILLINOIS SHOWING HIGHWAYS AND FOREST PRESERVES ISSUED BY BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS ANTON J. CERMAK, PRESIDENT
MAP APPEARS TO HAVE BEEN MODIFIED TO INDICATE GENERATING STATIONS, SUBSTATIONS, AND DISTRIBUTION CENTER OF THE W.U.G. & E. CO.(?)
LARGE 27" BY 30" SIZE ON CANVAS BACKED HEAVY PAPER FOLDS TO 7 1/2" BY 4 1/2" WITH BLACK 'COVERS', AS MAY BE OBSERVED IN PHOTOS
MAP IS IN VERY GOOD OVERALL CONDITION, IN MY OPINION, PARTICULARLY GIVEN IT'S AGE!
I'D ALSO GUESS THIS ORIGINAL MAP TO BE SOMEWHAT RARE, I'VE NEVER SEEN ONE, AND I'M SURE THEY WERE UPDATED/CHANGED FREQUENTLY.
THERE'S A BIT OF STAINING, PARTICULARLY ON REVERSE, POSSIBLE FADING/DISCOLORATION
IF YOU'RE A VINTAGE TELEPHONE/ELECTRIC MEMORABILIA COLLECTOR, PARTICULARLY IF INTERESTED IN WESTERN ELECTRIC, THIS COULD BE A 'MUST-HAVE' ITEM FOR YOU!
THANKS FOR 'LOOKING', AND PLEASE CHECK MY FUTURE LISTINGS FOR MUCH MORE WESTERN ELECTRIC, AND ASSOCIATED ITEMS!
