Description

Scarce early road map of Phoenix, Arizona, first prepared in 1928, with this example issued in December of 1936.

The map shows Phoenix at a much-reduced scale compared with its current footprint; it is essentially contained by the Maricopa and Grand Canals in the north and the Salt River in the south.

On the verso is a 1929 bird's-eye view of Phoenix and the Salt River Valley by T.A. Hayden. It shows the Granite Reef Diversion Dam and the small towns of Scottsdale, Tempe, Mesa, Chandler, and Gilbert. Paradise Valley is labeled but was almost entirely uninhabited desert.

It was issued as a promotional item for The Lightning Delivery Co. a moving and storage company in Phoenix.
