This "info-map" of the state was published by Rand McNally & Company for Gulf Oil. It is dense with information, identifying various roads and highways, town and city populations, airports, state parks, county seats, golf clubs, yacht clubs, points of interest, mileages, national parks, military reservations, and more. The landscape is peppered with charming cartoon illustrations of the state's many attractions. There is a "Florida Fishing Chart" with images of the state's various native fish, which appear on the map along the coast. Another table locates different types of wild life. The Gulf Oil logo is incorporated into the compass rose. Issued as a brochure with the title on cover "Florida Info-Map," this example has been mounted on linen.
