This is a fine print reproduction of a vintage pictorial map of Zion National Park that was originally produced by the Lindgren Brothers out of Spokane Washington in the 1930s. The map presents all landmarks, points of interest and many other places through the use of imaginative illustrations, play-on-word labeling, and amusing commentary. The color palate and style in which the map was made make it an inviting work that exemplifies the beauty and wonder of Zion National Park.
Founded in 1928 by brother Jolly Elmer and Oscar Simms Lindgren, the Lindgren Brothers produced a series of whimsical pictorial maps, mostly focused on national parks, but also paid attention to other areas of great natural beauty and wonder. Their style and color scheme is easily recognizable once one becomes familiar with just a handful of their works. Their maps were wildly popular from the mid-1930s to the 1950s as was tourism to the places their maps represent.
