You may be wondering how exactly I proceeded in dating it to that point. It was a lengthy process of looking up multiple countries online to check and see when their time period of existence was. I could have substituted it with merely googling "How to date a globe?" but at the time I was too excited. None the less, I can't help but wish I had some more minor facts and check points while actually in the store...wandering around...pondering whether it was a good purchase. Because had I not successfully talked myself into it, I would have regretted it. Which is why I'm creating a mini blog within my blog post per say.
How to... Roughly Date a Globe:
Is Czechoslovakia present (Later Czech Republic)?
How about the Soviet Union (Later Russia and other small countries)?
Is Germany separated into East and West?
Unified in 1976, Separated 1954
Do you see the Tanganyika Territory in Africa?
How about either French Equatorial Africa or French West Africa?
Is Anglo-Egyptian Sudan below Egypt?
Pre - 1956
Single country Pre-1953
Is there French Indochina where you would expect Vietnam and Cambodia?
If so, Pre- 1949
In addition to it being some fun facts to everyone reading...it will also ensure I don't forget should I ever find a globe again as writing/typing things drills them into my memory. Although these dates may not be completely exact, it was what I had found and can serve as a guideline.
That's all for now folks. Hopefully I'll be putting my new Christmas goodies up to share soon. Happy thrifting everyone.
