This detailed map of Palos Park, Illinois and the surrounding area provides a fascinating snapshot of the suburb about 25 miles southwest of Chicago near the end of the Great Depression. Buildings are individually outlined, roads are shown according to their surface composition (further info lower right), and geographic information is transmitted via pictorial elements and contoured topography.

Locations of interest within the image include the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal, Mount St. Joseph Home, a scout camp, and a ski and toboggan slide.

The map was originally published in 1928 by the United States Geological Survey under the authority of topographic engineer O.H. Nelson. This example has been updated to reflect changes as of 1933.
