Description
Detailed fold-out artist-rendered maps of the San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park and Downtown San Diego, with a Zebra illustration on cover. The San Diego Zoo map includes drawings of kangaroos, and sea lions, which are no longer housed at the Zoo, with the majority of enclosures undergoing significant transformation since this publication. This map is also significantly different than the 1947/1949~ version, with larger drawings and more vibrant colors. The Balboa Park map depicts artists renderings of the buildings of the park. Plans for 'restoration or replacement of many of these buildings for public use as centers of cultural, social, and recreational activities have been made by the Park and Recreation Department of the City of San Diego.' The map labeled Downtown San Diego includes street car lines which are no longer extant.
