Manhattan Pictorial Map - 1928
This very rare 1928 color pictorial map of Manhattan, New York by Danish American author Kaj Klitgaard extends from Battery to 59th Street. It includes marvelous illustrations of pre-depression Manhattan with numerous allegorical vignettes including: Vanderbilt Yacht / Dreaming of the 1928 Election; at the top right, there are portrait images of Al Smith (then Governor of New York) and James A. Reed (Senator from Missouri); Prohibition - the bottles in the water and "enforcement" vignette over the river at the top left; The Gilded Age - the delightful cornucopia vignettes locating the rich and not so rich; Zeppelin & Battle Ship, resembles the USS Los Angeles or the USS Shenandoah, battleship USS Texas; then subways, lines of the IRT, BMT, and elevated train system, churches, hotels, businesses, etc. Includes key at the lower right corner. This appears to be the only pictorial map by Klitgaard. There are many hidden themes and caricatures to be discovered in this map. The date is estimated based on the image of the USS Texas.
