With a map and listing of businesses and bars, and ads for many. Mostly owned and run by locals; not a single chain in sight. First edition. 21.5 cm; 44 pp.; illustrated from map and from drawings. Penciled additions to map; light stains to map pp.; else a good copy or better in pictorial wrappers. (Item ID: 013042)
