These pics are from two Centennial Issue road maps of Ontario (Northern Ontario and roads to recreation) . The maps themselves are standard fare so I didn’t include any shots, but the additional artwork is exceptional – some really fine samples of commercial art from the late 60’s. The captions extol the virtues of our hydroelectric dams, highway networks and bountiful protected parks. It’s all written in that glowing Centennial mood the whole country seemed to be in at the time. The thick colours and quality of lines are fantastic.
