Early Auto Travel Map to Yosemite
Vintage tourist map of the roads one could take to get to Yosemite, issued by the Yosemite Lodge in 1922, just as car-based vacationing was beginning to take hold in the United States.
A detailed road map showing central California as far south as Bakersfield, west to San Francisco, and north to Corning. The focus of the map is on the roads that could bring one to Yosemite National Park from the major cities in the region shown in the map. The map also includes insets of Lake Tahoe and vicinity, Yosemite Valley, and southern California. Interestingly, there are insets of the best ways to exit metropolitan areas on the way to Yosemite - these include Stockton, Modesto, Merced, Madera, Fresno, Bakersfield, and Sacramento.
The verso of the map contains extensive information on roads into Yosemite, Yosemite Valley Resorts, including rates for various lodges, and detailed Automobile and Motorcycle Regulations for Yosemite National Park.
The map was published by Carl A. Bundy Quill and Press, of Los Angeles, on behalf of the Yosemite Lodge, Yosemite National Park.
