Lighthearted map of the Overseas Highway connecting Miami to Key West.

Note that no scale is provided on this map, which uses a cleverly distorted perspective to “shorten” the distance between Miami and the Florida Keys. Such tricks were not uncommon in promotional maps like this one, issued by the American Automobile Association in 1950.

Drawings and photographs were also used regularly on maps to draw interest from tourists, though usually with more subtlety than the one here captioned “Thrills aplenty for the Bridge Fisherman.”
