Pictorial Map of Detroit 1934

Artist William Ogg Fitzgerald drew this pictorial map in 1934 for the Chrysler Corporation.

It presents an interesting amalgamation of the breadth of the automotive industry and specifically the Chrysler plants are in red as well as historical events in Detroit and Windsor.

It’s important to take this map’s historical accuracy with a grain of salt, but it has been presented beautifully with vibrant colors.
