Scarce post-World War II street map of Belmont, California, south of San Francisco. The map depicts the layout of the area between San Mateo, San Carlos, and Hidden Canyon Park, and was issued for the use of a local insurance agent, Harry Walden ("When the subject of the conversation is Insurance, talk with Walden"). Provides a good delineation of a town on the San Francisco peninsula that numbered approximately 5,000 inhabitants after the end of the war, but today is home to over 25,000. Ephemeral, with no copies located by OCLC.
