This most uncommon folding railroad timetable map shows the route between Jacksonville and Key West. The rail passes through St. Augustine, Ormond, New Smyrna (Turnbulls Original Settlement), Palm Beach and Miami, with spurs to Sanford, Orange City and Atlantic Beach. A section view shows the entire route that, given the flatness, serves primarily as a scale for incremental and cumulative mileage. Steam ship connections to Cuba and Nassau are detailed. On verso are extensive timetables plus advertisements for The Florida East Coast Hotel and Long Key Fishing Camp with rates starting at $3 a day. The map is handsome in several colors while the timetable side has a solid yellow background. Self folds into covers (4.5" x 9"), dated January 4, 1910.
