Mid 20th century Cold War era color lithographed folding city plan which shows the various "evacuation" routes the population can take in the event of a nuclear attack (!).
Well preserved, nice looking example with pleasing age patina, very clean, one tiny short fold line edge split.

A remarkable piece of hopeful cartographic persuasion which would most likely be used by no one in the event of urban attack and chaos.
