During WW2 and after with the Air-Age Globalism and President's Roosevelt's Good Neighbor Policy( a policy designed to bring the US out of their isolationism and see the world as a community) the world became smaller. People were encouraged and innundated with advertisements to travel to exotic foreign countries and now more than ever the interest in globes and geography became present. With this new awareness distance calculations became popular using string or instruments to measure from point of origin to destination. With the new axis free mounting users could now liberate the globe from it's mount making these calculations much easier.

This 1946 Crams is a superb example of one of these globes. Noting distances in Statute Miles and even noting Estimated Bomber and Transort cruising speeds. On the horizon ring is listed miles, degrees and times to assit the user in these calculation.

The Political borders displayed; French Indochina, Baluchistan (becomes Pakistan in 1947), Siam (changed from Thailand in 1946), Trans Jordon is shown, Palestine and Israel or listed (negotiations?), Tanganyika is listed (1946-61), No E&W Germany or N&S Korea both divided in 1949

The condition of the globe is remarkable! Free of dents, scratches, soiling, holes or tears! In Like New condition with only the paper Time Dial missing and a felt piece at the bottom grommet missing. The stand and horizon ring have only the most minimal of soiling.
