Exhibiting decidedly less French than later maps of Montreal, this mid-century promotional map shows a neatly organized city ready to embrace any intrepid tourist. Prominent buildings are individually illustrated and labeled, giving a narrow perspective of locations deemed suitable by the publisher – Murray Hills Limousine Service. The aggressive branding and marketing exhibiting in maps like this are perhaps one reason why the company continues to operate in Montreal today.
Overviews of available tours, includes one to the newly completed St. Lawrence Seaway, are provided on the verso, along with additional contemporary advertisements for points of interest in the city.
