Terrific double-page map of the state that is filled with interesting information. The map details swamps, lakes, towns and counties. The southern portion from Lake Okeechobee south is in a large inset (on the same scale) and provides exceptional detail of the keys. Railroads traverse the panhandle with named railroads extending to the area of Cedar Keys, and another to Ocala with planned expansion to Tampa. Two isolated railroads, one extend between Orlando (here Orlandino) and Sanford, and another between Lake Dora and Lakeview on Lake George. Forty-two counties are named.
