Description

One of the best of Greyhound's vintage pictorial maps of the United States. This map, issued to promote domestic travel around the United States, makes the point that one did not need to fly or steam to another country to have diverse and exotic experiences while traveling.  This was a natural point to make for a company specializing in national bus travel.

The map lists a total of 88 locations in the United States and their analogous locations around the world. Some of the connections are easier to believe than others -- in some cases, it is clear that the author of the map has visited neither city in the analogy.  North and South Carolina are compared to Turkey "(Both are centers of the tobacco industry)"; New York City is compared to "All Nations"; Stone Mountain in Atlanta is compared to the Jain Colossus in India; Bolivia is compared to Joplin Missouri...

The persuasive intent of the map is further communicated with a globe shining down on the United States.
