Tulsa’s connection

This handy little map, from the 1930s, promoted travel to and from Tulsa, Okla. along U.S. 66. The map is illustrated with hand-drawn cartography and scenes from the different states. A thicket of oil wells greeted travelers in Oklahoma. Cactus, canyons and mountains added luster to Arizona. Large cities, like Chicago and St. Louis are shown, as well as tinier towns like Texola and Holbrook. The map has one minor goof – the spelling of Albuquerque…a common city to misspell.
