Description

Interesting pictorial map of the Monterey Peninsula, centered on the Hotel Del Monte and Golf Links, with with the Pepple Beach Lodge and Pacific Grove Hotel.

Vibrantly colored, the map shows the 17 Mile Drive and scenic routes through the hills, with detailed text on each of two drives on either side of the map.  On the verso, colorful images of the Pacific Grove Hotel and Pebble Beach Lodge are shown, along with decorative covers showing the Hotel Del Monte.

Prior to its association with the world famous golf course, Pebble Beach was a quaint retreat on California’s Monterey Peninsula. The lodge was purchased by Samuel Finley Brown Morse, ‘The Duke of Del Monte’, in 1919 and was incorporated into his extensive real estate holdings in the area. The map was issued shortly after the acquisition, and advertises the Lodge at Pebble Beach, the Pacific Grove Hotel and the Del Monte Hotel as “under the same management. "

The image was drawn by Worthington Gates and printed in Oakland by the Kelley-Davis Company.
