Old Road Maps

Got lucky today at an estate sale and picked up some vintage road maps that the gas stations used to give away for FREE.
1940 Phillips 66, Iowa, USA on backside.

1943 Texaco, TN state. This was a rare map issued during the war. Cover reads: Paper is Precious ! Please do not throw this map away.
Back cover has a picture of a billboard that reads: WAR Speed Under 35.

Harry,
very cool.
I live in NY, and many of those maps would be the ones my father was reading when he took us on vacation. (in a 37 Pontiac, then a 51 Dodge with "fluid drive" IIRC, then a '55 Pontiac Chieftain).... It was a very different world.
