This Week In Fort Lauderdale (March 26 thru April 1, 1966)

This Week in Fort Lauderdale was a weekly magazine highlighting the activities happening in Fort Lauderdale, Florida for that week. This is the issue from 46 years ago this week. I have scanned all 48 pages and even including a map that marks the locations of every single business advertised (minus the golf courses) in the magazine.
Let me know what you think of the map. I spent all day on it and am not sure I can tell how useful it is.
Edit: Apparently I can't embed the map. Instead, here's the link for the map. If that doesn't work I start stabbing.
