E101 - 1942 Carmel Jo Mora B&W

Pictured here, courtesy of the David Rumsey Map Collection, is the original pen and ink drawing by Jo Mora of his Carmel-by-the-Sea carte from 1942. It is interesting to note how little Chinawhite (used back in the day to cover mistakes) there is on the drawing - an indication of Jo Mora's sure hand and committed approach to his work.
