Description

Large wall map of San Diego County published by the San Diego-based mapmaker Rodney Stokes Co. around 1925.

A fascinating and detailed map of San Diego county at 1:25,000, showing the region before it had been transformed by freeways and large-scale suburban development.

There is extensive information about the Indian reservations within the county, as well as roads, and neighborhood and city names.

The map key differentiates between paved highways, secondary roads, city & grant lines, township lines, section lines, county boundaries, railroads, resorts, and missions.

At the bottom of the map are indexes of the local resorts, towns, lakes and reservoirs, and ranches.

The map shows Torrey Pines Lodge (different from the Lodge at Torrey Pines), which was built between 1922 and '23 but it does not have any numbered U.S. Highways (such as 101). As such, it was probably made between 1924 and 1926.
