3 Dated Events War Map V-E Commemorating Victory In Europe May 8-45 (Akron Tarpaulin Company)

Crisp, colorful, large map measuring 17-1/4" tall and 39" wide. Folds handily to 8-1/2"x9-3/4". Only fault is a small tear to edge repaired discreetly at back by me with archival tape. Spotlights and dates the most important events of WWII since the Munich Agreement of Sept, 30, 1938. Seems to have been a promotional item companies could purchase and have printed with their name. In this instance it was the Akron Tarpaulin Company which had the following message added, "We, the Akron Tarpaulin Company, are endeavoring ro serve you the best we can with the best merchandise we can get under wartime restrictions." Nice Ohio collectible.
