The cover designs improved a little in the 80's.


1980 This is a half way decent photo, and no concrete! But there is that dumb saying on the cover.
1980 Penna Turnpike, Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission. This brochure has a General Drafting map very like the one used in the late 70s maps, but dated 1980 here.
1981 Penna Turnpike. There was no official map issued in 1981. This is an 18 x 23 inch map from the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission based upon a highway department map. Half the map is shown here to include an interchange info map at top. On the verso is a regional map of the middle Atlantic states. For some turnpike history, see Pennsylvania Turnpike .
1982 This is a picture of City Hall in Philadelphia with the statue of William Penn on top. A hotel entrance is in the foreground.
  1983 No official map issued.
1984 Two maps with the same cover were issued in 1984, one saying 'Transportation' and the other saying 'Tourist' map. Again, a Pittsburgh photo follows a Philly one to maintain geographical harmony. Why don't photos of Erie or Scranton appear?
