Maps for Everyone! – Pic of the Week

I had never really looked at the map in my office until Andrew pointed it out one day. I was surprised at how old it was! And how small the territory of the United States was! I thought I’d share with you images from it. For those that are curious, yes, it appears we all have maps in our offices. Do you?
