Rand McNally & Company, still a major name in map publishing to this day, began as a small print shop opened in Chicago in 1856 by William H. Rand. The shop originally printed guidebooks and directories. In 1858, Rand hired Andrew McNally who was later to become a partner. Within the next few years, the shop got into the railroad business by starting to print railway tickets and schedules, a key step in the development of the company. The ticket printing led to the publishing of railway guides, and by 1872 Rand McNally and Company had the capacity to publish maps. This map of North and South Africa came from Rand McNallys Commercial Atlas, sixty-first Edition dated 1930. A highly successful run of atlases that lasted over a decade. All railroad routes are shown on the map. This map includes all cities and towns, lakes, rivers, and bodies of water.
