In many Canadian provinces, retail sales of alcoholic
beverages (including beer) were restricted to stores operated
by the provincial government. In Ontario, beer sales were made
through Brewers Retail, the provincially-licensed beer retail
monopoly. This unusual 1972 map was issued by Brewers Retail
with cartography by Rolph-McNally. The location of each
Brewers Retail "beer store" is indicated graphically on the
map and in addition lists the available brands of beer and
their provincially-fixed prices. Beer store locations and
closing hours are listed in tabular form.
This odd map was issued by the Illinois Shorthorn Breeders'
Association (ISBA) in 1950. Though the map folds to different
dimensions than an ordinary road map, the unfolded map is of
standard dimensions. The locations of 175 large shorthorn
cattle herds owned by ISBA members are overprinted in red on
the map front. On the map's rear, addresses and directions for
each of these herds are listed in place of the city maps that
appear on the rear of a conventional road map. The cartography
for this 1950 map was done by Goushá.
