Striking example of this interesting promotional map of San Francisco, published in 1984.

The map provides a fascinating distortion of the distance between San Francisco and Far East, with Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, China, Philippines, Singapore, Australia and India across a narrow Pacific Ocean, highlighting San Francisco as the easy jumping off point to East Asia and beyond.
