condition: good
make / manufacturer: H. M. Gousha
model name / number: Diamond Motor Oil
In spite of this map being 93 years old, it looks like it was never used and is in excellent shape.

Yes, the gas station attendant’s smiling face on the front is a bit creepy, but it contributes to the uniqueness of the map.

H.M. Gousha lithographed the map in Chicago.

Inside, there are two Michigan radio logs with all the station call numbers of 1939, which have since changed. Also, there are 1930 census information.

The Michigan side of the map would be great for framing, since this was a long time before interstate highways and the Mackinac Bridge were built. Note that in the UP, the Central Time Zone started soon after you crossed over, close to Newberry.
