I’m not going to mention who the old bloke is; I’ll let him identify himself, under what pseudonym is anybody’s guess. but he seems to have developed a thing for maps, if you don’t believe me go look for yourselves at https://paolsoren.wordpress.com
So me, not knowing better, says something along the lines of, “I’ve got a map hanging on the wall too”, so he comes back, and says he wants to see more maps, and it’s my turn or something along those lines.
Not the one I’ve got on the wall, but one I pinched from Wiki, which is in the public domain. this one is from 1154 and is entitled Tabula Rogeriana.
The one I have on the wall, I purchased (not a cheapskate, pinching a map from a caff) at Greenwich on the 21st October 2005, which to my mind was a very important day. Not so important to the Poms mind you, they decided they’d decided to celebrate the Great Day in JUNE, would you believe, something to do with the weather; typical.
Anyway here it is; the War office had an old,rustic looking, frame that kind of goes nicely with the map, and she said I could have it.
