Official 1966 Tourist Map of Edmonton 24” square print ($40 CAD)
We all know the Edmonton occupies about 20 percent of my heart at any given time, and that portion of my heart swelled when I ran into this: a rare actually good-looking map of Edmonton. It’s not pictorial, but it has the fantastic li’l Klondike Mike at bottom right. It’s not colourful, but its colours do pop. I harvested the basic map from the Edmonton City Archives, and it took quite a bit of editing and retouching to get it as handsome as it is right now. Sold as a reproduction without frame, includes a half-inch margin.
