Fascinating separately issued map of Columbia, published by the National Federation of Coffee Growers of Colombia for the San Francisco International Exposition of 1939, with stamp on the verso.

Detailed map of Columbia, focusing on Coffee production, with several tables, describing:

  • Distances from Principal Coffee Centers To Ocean Shipping Ports
  • Steamship Companies Engaged in Transportation of Coffee From Colombia to Europe and America
  • Colombia's "Coffee Census" for 1938
  • Usual Coffee Picking Seasons (by region--main and secondary crops)

The Legend also notes the national boundaries, department, intendencia and comisaria boundaries, railroads, highways, cableways, lighthouses and, of course, a red square locating regions with more than 400,000 Coffee Trees and red triangles for regions with less than 400,000 coffee trees.

The National Federation of Coffee Growers of Colombia then boasted offices on Wall Street in New York, as well as offices in San Francisco and New Orleans.
