Humorous bird's-eye view pictorial map of San Francisco. The city building shown as simplified blocky structures shaded red and pink. The streets are teeming with small cartoon figures, however, more typical tourist attractions on this map are also labeled: beaches, museums, neighborhoods, parks and landmarks. Ships are docked at the piers, an airplane flies over the ocean, and a compass rose is drawn in perspective as if floating on the bay. 49 highlighted restaurants, cocktail lounges, nightclubs and bars are listed in the legend under "Pilot for pixilated philanderers with a penchant for getting pickled," which is being shown to a top-hatted tourist by a showgirl dressed only in stockings and heels and a winking devil in formal dress. The legend provides addresses and brief descriptions of the establishment. The map emphasizes the city's reputation for sexual license and uninhibited entertainment, especially in the neighborhood known as The Barbary Coast. Six text panels in the upper section offer guidebook-style descriptions of "The Old Barbary Coast," "The Latin Quarter," "The Golden Gate Park," "The Bridges," "Chinatown" and "Landmarks."
