The historic map of Texas is a nostalgic and humorous representation of the state created in the 1960’s. The map depicts Texas as the greatest state in the Union, with various illustrations and historical footnotes throughout. Some of the drawings on the map refer to Texan women as the “most beautiful ladies on Earth”, Dallas is the city with the “most money in the world”, Austin is the “Capitol of the Universe”, and more.
The map features playful descriptions of various Texan cities and landmarks, such as Dallas being the city with the “most money in the world” and Austin being the “Capitol of the Universe”. In addition to boasting about the greatness of Texas, the map also takes humorous jabs at other states, such as Washington and Oregon being the “Waste Land taken from Russia” and California being labeled as “Calaphoney”.
