1941 Mobilgas Pegasus Road Map of Michigan - $35 (west of Ann Arbor)

1234567891011121314151617

condition: good
make / manufacturer: Socony Mobil

Just one look at the car pictured on the front and back cover of this Michigan road map will illustrate how old this map is.

Not only is the outside of this road map in good condition (no stains or discoloration), the inside is in equally good condition.

The map is two-sided, with one side displaying Michigan roads in the UP and lower peninsula. The other side has a smaller sized road map of Michigan and the adjoining states. There are two very small pinprick holes along the upper crease, but they can only be seen if you hold up the map to sunlight.

On the Michigan side of the road map are numerous Mobil Pegasus logos in each corner as well as a larger one over Lake Michigan. In the upper left hand corner is the Michigan census figures from 1940.

Since this map is from the pre-interstate era, the old road numbers occasionally appear (Highway 16 instead of I-96 and many of the smaller roads). On one side is smaller inset maps of Detroit, Flint, and Grand Rapids as the roads appeared in 1941.
