Mac Map c. 1985/6?

I recently found this map I'd created on my friend's Mac 512K back around 1985 or 1986. I remember thinking it was the coolest thing in the world (at the time.)

I still think there's something cool about it. I just wish I could figure out a way to get the same look now. (Somehow, the computer's become too smart and powerful for me to figure out how to get it to not look so smart and powerful.)


  1. First off, that map is awesome!

    There is PCE/macplus, which emulates the 512. The 512 shipped with MacPaint. You can download the disk image for MacPaint from the Computer History Museum.

    Getting it up & running might take some geek-fu, but it isn't insurmountable.

  2. I actually have an old Mac Classic in the garage (still works.) I just need to download Macpaint, then get it over to that computer.
