St. John's Coronation Souvenir Map 1937 36x24" print ($60 CAD)
On the 12th of May 1937 George VI and Queen Elizabeth ascended to the throne of the Empire, and three dozen or so St. John's businesses thought it a great time to pool their advertising dollars and make this two-colour map. George and Elizabeth are at top centre, the map is by city engineer W. P. Ryan, and my favourite ad is the one for H. J. Thomas & Son contractors that boasts about them having built the Cabot Tower. Has a half-inch margin, sold without frame. A reproduction pulled from the Memorial University Map Room right here.
