A map of the Bermuda Islands : ya des demonios, isles of the devils
Title (alt.):
Bermuda Islands
Description:
Women were very active in the production of pictorial maps in the early 20th-century. These whimsical maps frequently focused on travel and tourism. Bordered by a ribbon of ocean creatures, this 1930 map of Bermuda illustrates various methods of transportation from horse-drawn carriages to pirate ships and airplanes. On shore, tourism reigns with beaches, golf courses, tennis courts, shooting ranges and historic forts. Designed by Elizabeth Shurtleff and Helen McMillin, who studied at the Boston Museum School of Fine Arts and Wellesley College respectively, this map encourages visits to the island by promoting recreation and history.
