Although the hobby of collecting older maps is not an overwhelmingly popular activity, it does attract many people who for various reasons find satisfaction in getting their hands on a 1935 Sunoco map or a map of downtown Toronto from Simpson's Sears published in 1955. I guess I am one of those strange people that cringe with the fragility of some old maps, admire the cover art work from another era and treasure the comradeship that a common interest promotes. Since 2006 when I first launched my site, I have had the good fortune to hear from other collectors and many of them have provided information as well as both scans of maps and actual maps that are used on this site. I would like to thank them here.
