Issued during the so-called “Golden Age” of flying, this map shows the various routes in operation by Pan American Airlines across the Caribbean. Departure cities are noted along the Atlantic seaboard, while regional destinations include the Bermudas, Havana (the map predates travel restrictions first imposed in 1963), San Juan, the Antilles, and various areas in South America. Mileage is noted along many of the routes, which are labeled using a variety of interesting code names.

Various historical notes are also scattered throughout the image, though a lack of context or geographic definition prevents any coherent theme. They are indicative, however, of contemporary cultural perceptions as shown by the emphasis on pirates, colonialism, industrial output, etc.

The map is conventionally attributed to around 1950, (see Rumsey 11478.000), but the presence of what appears to be a Boeing 707, first released in 1958, indicates a later publication date.
