Map of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, surrounded by a continuous illustrated border showing buildings, lighthouses, and vacationers enjoying activities such as golf, hunting, fishing, sailing and sitting on the beach. The map itself has simple cartography, showing bays, sounds, towns, ponds, roads, and forests. There are three larger illustrations, one of two Pilgrims near Plymouth, one of a fisherman in a rowboat in Cape Cod Bay, and a rock and buoys with seagulls, which forms the background for the cartouche. The border is outlined with a rope design alluding to the area’s maritime heritage.
