This is a beautiful old map that was made specifically for the Chicago Down Town Area when the Century of Progress Celebration was held in 1934. It's in exceptional condition and only shows a little "drawer" wear....it looks as if it were never used. The scale is one inch to 800 feet and it is very detailed. It has a very nice Century of Progress Index which pointed out the specific attractions and located them on the map. This is a wonderful old map that displays the bright Shell logo and Chicago streets very well.
