New in the collection: Silk scarf with illustrated map

Silk scarf with map of North Carolina containing errors

Detail of silk scarf showing farmers planting full grown cotton

Silk scarf detail showing Lake Talasee. There appears to be no such lake in N.C.

Several misspellings and map errors – and why do the farmers seem to be planting cotton rather than seed? – but this yard-square scarf surely deserves points for ambition and range. No date or other info on the tag – maybe 1950s?
