HELLO AND WELCOME TO "MAP OF THE MONTH!" FOR #7 WE ARE DOING ROAD MAPS OF SHELL OIL CO. HOPE EVERYONE CAN SHARE THEIR EXAMPLES OF SHELL'S ROAD MAPS AND TOUR WITH CONFIDENCE GUIDES!

WHILE THE EARLIER SHELL MAPS HAVE SOME REALLY AWESOME TRIFOLD ILLUSTRATIONS, THEIR LATER MAPS ARE A BIT MUNDANE....A BIT BORING.
WHICH IS OKAY, SINCE I HAVE TO PLAY THIS M.O.T.M. A BIT ON THE LIGHT SIDE. MOST OF MY OWN COLLECTION IS ONCE AGAIN FROM THE 40'S ON UP.
BUT MANAGED TO FIND A FEW OF THESE NICER EXAMPLES ON THE INTERNET.

THANKS IN ADVANCE TO ALL THAT PARTICIPATE IN MAKING MOTM - #7 SHELL A SUCCESS.

Now you're talking Doc. Shell has some of the beautiful maps that were produced.
Here are four maps that appear similar, but do have slight variations. Only one is dated and it is 1925. These maps were West Coast versions from the early to mid twenties.

Here is a map from Auckland. Rather plain looking on the cover, but then check out the inside panel.
