St. Catherines 1950 18x24” print ($40 CAD)
I have a thing for large amounts of gridded text, and this very did-it-themselves 1950 map of St. Catharines has it in bulk. Seemingly, only two businesses (Wallace’s at top right and Bob Patrick Cycle & Sports at bottom) got the memo that logos could be worked into the layout, and I appreciate the pale blue paper, unique compass rose and how the “Lake Ontario” label has been penned with angular imperfection.
