CALIFORNIA San Francisco 1975- Rand McNally


Article copyright D. S. Brown except images copyright Rand McNally 1975.

This map has some interesting trivia on the back flap. Back in the mid 1970s most countries were switching to Metric. USA was poised to do so over the next decade. For those of us who grew up on the old Imperial system it was a big relief that this never happened. For the Metric people it's a source of frustration that the anachronistic system is still in place here while the rest of the world has switched over.

Included with the Metric conversions, there is an interesting graph for calculating MPG. Below is the front of the map which sports some typical road signs as a design motif.


The back of the map below has the MPG and Metric information. For those of you who are interested in calculating MPG there is an entire section in the GAS LOGS area of the TRAVEL STORIES section of this website.
