vintage DC map

 I love this great children's map of Washington, DC from "The Best in Children's Books," published in 1959. We live just slightly off the right edge. I think it's interesting which landmarks they chose to include and which they didn't (the majority of the Smithsonian institutions - although a few were yet to be built). The coloring makes me think of cherry blossoms which are just around the corner. Maybe you should come for a visit!
