Description

Rare color bird's-eye view of northern Minnesota, produced in Duluth by J.E. Linden.

The map was produced to entice vacationers from the Twin Cities to travel to Lake Vermilion in the summer. Lake Superior and Duluth occupy the bottom of the map, and Lake Vermilion and the Superior National Forest are at the top. The mapmaker employs  tortured perspective to make it seem as though Lake Vermilion is a mere 20-minute drive from Duluth when it was probably several hours' drive at the time.

The map also includes a map of the Superior National Forest illustrated with photographs and outlines of "one of the many canoe routes through Superior National Forest".
