Vernon-Might published scores of "Clearview" maps of Ontario cities in the 1930s, and you can see at least a few of them in my collection. Their Sudbury map follows their formula: square in shape with a pleasant hand-scripted city name, all of it framed with various local ads. And do those local ads ever shine in Sudbury. A.A. Jackson's Ambulance and Funeral Service at 120 Durham, "Mr. Business Man," and "Senior the Plumber" at 139 Kathleen Street are all begging for CBC sitcom treatment. 

A reproduction available at 12x12" or 24x24" on Epson Enhanced Matte 192 gsm paper printed with Epson UltraChrome XD2 archival ink. Sold in an open edition, unframed. Based on this original public domain image held by Library & Archives Canada.
