Jo Mora’s Grand Canyon Map original artwork was done in 1931

Jo Mora was originally commissioned by Scenic Airways, do this map, but the deal did not go through. You will notice the reference to an airplane on the bottom left of the carte. The first variation was published in black & white but, due to a lack of popularity, it was colored in some years later and published by Jo Mora Publications. It is packed with historical notes and humor of a time gone by. What fun it would be to reference this map on a trip to the Grand Canyon.
