Note: This map has a very generic appearance to it - the only reference to Esso is the logo on the cover and the small boxes containing information about the Voyageur Restaurants.  I would speculate that the same map was made available to any company or organization who was willing to pay to have their logo attached to it.  It truly reflects the decline of public maps and their priority to the oil companies.
