Road Map Collectors of America

Popularity:    Hit: 1254 | Visit: 18
For map collectors, with information on the hobby, maps in general, and the RMCA organization.
Title: Road Map Collectors Association

The advent of affordable automobiles spawned a new trend in American culture: the road trip. Motorists anxious to tour the country quickly tired of stopping every few miles to ask directions; out of their troubles came the first road maps, given away by gasoline companies hoping to increase business and customer loyalty. State and provincial governments soon began turning out maps of their own for tourists, using them to promote the scenic and cultural wonders of the state, and perhaps enticing the visitor to remain a few more days.
