It's April 1st, 1941, and while it's April Fool's Day, you're no fool: you're in deep deep trouble if you arrive late for big gun practice at the Artillery Training Centre near the map's bottom right. The map suggests taking the number 93 street car from downtown to there in a jiffy, but the map also distracts you fun and tiny illustrations as the street car passes your stop, doubles back, and rolls back towards downtown. Oops. Special thanks to the anonymous illustrator who completed this delightful scene. 

A reproduction available at 16x12" or 24x18" on Epson Enhanced Matte 192 gsm paper printed with Epson UltraChrome XD2 archival ink. Sold in an open edition, unframed. Restored from a digital file found in the Manitoba Historical Maps Flickr account .
