Isn't it DREAMY?? Firstly, it falls into my favorite time period - late 40s-early 50s (1953, to be exact!). The color is eye-catching, and the friendly bus driver - of course it's a white male for this time period - is reassuring and dependable (Heaven forbid a woman drive a bus! Why, she'd crash it the first day!).
Aside from the map logistics, aren't those colors just marvelous? I am really torn with this map - on the one hand, it's a great piece of Milwaukee history and I admire it for that, but on the other hand I see all of those tiny red and yellow squares and I envision a super-cool collage or tiny bit for a pendant. What to do?
Readers, I need your help on this - let's do an informal poll! I'll put it up on Facebook if you'd like to follow along. If you don't use Facebook, you can answer here, too. Here's the question:
Say you bought this map because you loved it. But it also contains many bits of collagey goodness. Would you:
A. Keep the map intact - it's a delicious slice of Milwaukee history!
B. Use if for collages - it's only paper, after all!
C. Save the cover and the back, and go to town on the rest
Thanks in advance for your help! :D
