Designed by Rand McNally and distributed by the Monroe County Publicity Bureau, this map highlights the myriad of recreational opportunities available around Stroudsburg, PA in the Pocono Mountains. Activities are concentrated around the summer season (ski resorts in the Poconos wouldn’t become popular until the late 1950’s) and including hunting, fishing, swimming and golf. Bold text uses hard numbers to laud the natural diversity and comfortable amenities available in the region, while a map on the verso shows the central location of Stroudsburg in relation to major cities nearby. Accessibility is key when trying to draw tourist crowds!
