Striking large pictorial map of the United States, produced for the Chicago World's Fair of 1933.

The map was executed by Louis Delton Fancher, a well regarded graphic artist for the Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company (A & P), as a promotional item for the World's Fair.

This lively map provides a cornocopia of food products from the 48 states, with a listing of the products from each state and  colorful pictographs of the food production.  Alaska is represented with an Eskimo on a fish carrying a sign "from Alaska, great catches of fish." In the ocean are colorful sea creatures.

At each corner there is a small inset map of the United States, showing the distribution of poultry production, the A & P organization, grains, and meats & fish. .
