Published in Miami in 1951 by noted American cartographer George Annand (1890-1980), this rare, colored pictorial map of the Bahamas includes large, detailed insets of the city of Nassau and New Providence Island. Also featured are depictions of Columbus’ ships making landfall, pirate activity along the shoreline, and the Native Straw Market. Additionally, the map illustrates several water-related activities available to tourists throughout the year, emphasizing this point with the printed declaration, “It’s June year ’round in the Bahamas.” Images of the colorful assortment of fish found in Bahamian waters are also portrayed, as are the various forms of British currency historically circulated on New Providence Island. The map’s title cartouche bears witness to the deep-rooted ties between Great Britain and the Bahamas by displaying the flags of both countries, as well as the Bahamian national badge and coat-of-arms.
