Supertest Road Maps
                ......the late 30's

....
    1936                1938                   1939
 

 These maps were produced by The Map Specialty Co., Toronto
and printed by Reid Bros & Co. Ltd., London , Ontario.
While not dated , the map on the left is believed to be 1936 .
If there was a 1937 map produced , it may used this same cover.
The map I have labelled 1938 has a small '38 in the bottom right corner .
Revised in1939, showing new highways, the '38 remains in the corner.
   It appears the new slogan "HAPPY MOTORING" began in 1939.
 
Dating early maps is certainly a challenge and not an exact science, rather,
 an educated guess based on known dates of highway improvements,
 company logos and slogans ,and the advertising contained with-in,
