Shell Oil Company - Eastern Maps 1925-1933

The above is a representative set of the early MidWest/Eastern United States Shell maps.  I think they are one of the most colorful of all the map sets.  The contrast with the early West Coast shell maps is dramatic.   The east and west map programs came together in 1933 with the 1933 license plate map.   I would like to thank Carl Liedholm for sharing scans of his 1927 and 1928 Shell Maps, and James Wakefield for sharing a scan of his 1925 map, the rest are some I have accumulated over the years.   I don't really collect the Eastern Shell maps and am not an expert on these, so I really don't have a lot to say about them.  The 1926 and 1927 maps are from Roxana Petroleum in St. Louis.
