Road Map of St. Louis, ca 1989

Usage conditions apply
This American Automobile Association (AAA) issued this road map of St. Louis during the late 1980s. Before GPS and map applications, paper maps were an invaluable resource to traveling motorists. AAA was established in 1902 as a conglomeration of motorist clubs, and began campaigning for improved roads, providing roadside services, and supplying its members with maps, hotel information and tourist guides. The cover of this map features images of St. Louis’ attractions including the Gateway Arch, the St. Louis Zoo, the St. Louis Science Center, and the St. Louis Cardinals baseball team.
