Description

Lively pictorial map of the Southern California, focused on the Salton Sea and Anza-Borrego Desert.

An unusual focus on the Desert regions of Imperial County and the eastern part of Riverside County, promoting recreational activities in the region. The map is issued in the last decade (1970s) in which the Salton Sea was actively promoted, before its shrinking size and salinity became a serious issue for visitors.

Includes a number of historical and recreational vignettes, including the Gold Mines near Julian and Butterfield Stage Coach line, 

The map is topped with an illustration celebrating Juan Jose Warner, Pioneer of the Warner Ranch, with stage and covered wagon vignettes.
