Groovy 70s Map of My Hometown! – 8/6/19

Sometime back in the psychedelic day of bell bottoms, shag carpeting and Bee Gees disco, a poster “was commissioned by Mutual Savings Bank of Wisconsin which depicts “Mutual Savings Country”—a.k.a. Milwaukee, Southeast Wisconsin, and beyond. The artists’ names (located in the bottom-right corner) are Patty Ortega and Darrel Millsap. We can’t find any information on Ortega, but Millsap was a prolific, California-based, Mad Men-era commercial illustrator who died in 2012. (Read more about Millsap and his work here.) There’s no year on the Wisconsin poster, but Millsap created a similar California poster for Home Federal Savings Bank in 1973. [Source:]
