Two manuscript maps of St. Augustine, Florida and of the area.

Two manuscript maps of St. Augustine, Florida and of the area.

DESCRIPTION: Two manuscript maps on a single sheet inserted into a tourism brochure of St. Augustine, Florida after printing. Unusual. Maps show St. Augustine at street-level detail and on verso a smaller-scale map of the area surrounding St. Augustine. Type-written text on one map sheet indicates re-use of a telephone service remittance document for creation of the map. The small scale map of the area around St. Augustine appears only to consider railway lines (F.E.C., A.C.C.) of importance as railways are highlighted in color and stops along each route are identified.

Booklet (folds to 4" x 9") presented with the compliments of the St. Augustine Hotel Association. Fine cover graphics of period clothing. Booklet art work, engraving and printing by the Record Company, St. Augustine. Dated between 1916 and 1919 based on information provided about the Flagler Hospital, under construction at printing, after a fire in 1916 destroyed much of the original structure.
