Esso Pictorial Plan Of The North Moor, Mountain And Lake District : A. E. Taylor

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A very decorative map of the roads of Northern England from the Scottish border South to Liverpool, Manchester, and Sheffield. A. E. Taylor's series first appeared in 1932 as promotional posters for Pratt's Motor Oil Company and were re-issued by Esso after Pratt's takeover at slightly reduced scale in 1936 in "Pictorial Britain and Ireland, The roads of Great Britain and Ireland showing the principal places of interest." Each map is covered with vignettes and small panels of text illustrating and describing major towns and landmarks along the roads. In the top left corner, an inset plan of the Isle of Man appears. Embellished by literary quotations from famous writers including Hazlitt, Shakespeare and Walt Whitman.
