This large, folding map of Texas was produced by the Gulf Production Company. The map lists 258 counties at lower left with a key at top listing post offices, railroads, and county seats. Curiously, the map legend lists several different types of oil pipeline, but none are drawn on the map. A very rare map, issued during the great oil boom of the early 20th century.
