How the United States Was Like to Fly in the Roaring ’20s

This map is produced by Rand McNally for showing the transcontinental air travelers of the Roaring ’20s, and it charts the 48-hour trip from New York to San Francisco. It shows not only the flight route but also the major American landmarks passengers would fly by on the way. On the back of the map, Rand McNally included a weather map, a “Certificate of Flight” log passengers could fill out as they went. Being as a souvenir, do you want one?
