This pictorial map depicts the fictional town of Weber City as conceived by the Amos & Andy Show of the 1930s. The map was "drawn" by Andrew H Brown and "assisted" by Amos James and is filled with humorous commentary about the town including "Dog OK But Beware of Wife", "The Tired and Hungry Business Men's Lunch Club Meets Here $0.50", and "Bite-A-Minute Lake." The town was apparently only 217.75 miles from Harlem based upon a billboard near the right border. Published by the Pepsodent Company. Blank verso.
