Notes

"This is the preliminary edition of the Middle West Sheet of the sectional road map of Canada and the United States. Its purpose is to supply key information to tourists contemplating travel in Canada by auto. Routes have been shown connecting the more largely populated urban centres in each State with the important Canadian points of entry. There has also been indicated as far as possible without unduly congesting the map, the accessibility of the various Canadian districts by auto. The information appearing on this map has been obtained from various sources and is believed to be authentic. This Service would welcome any constructive criticism and would appreciate the receipt of suggestions or corrections which would tend to increase the value of the map for the purpose outlines. Additional copies may be obtained upon application to the Natural Resources Intelligence Service, Department of the Interior, Ottawa, Canada."
