Attractive vintage English-language tourist map of Taipei, Taiwan. The map shows the city as mainly limited between the Keelung and Hsintien Rivers, while the city was in the process of growing rapidly.
Places of interest, including cultural centers, parks, historic districts, and more are all labeled on the map. Major streets and arteries are shown. An inset shows northern Taiwan, indicating waterfalls and swimming beaches. The map cost 50 cents (USD) at the time of publication.
This map most likely dates to the mid-1970s, as Dr. Sun Yat-Sen's memorial hall appears (completed in 1972), but no mention is made of Taipei's current main airport, Taiwan Taoyuan (completed in 1979).
Vintage English-language maps of Taiwan are rare on the market. This is the second time we offer one for sale.
