SUMMER SALE- was $220.00
Vintage school map of Africa Made by Nystrom & Co. in Chicago. This double map is 77.5" (over 6 feet) long and 50" (over 4 feet) wide. The map easily pulls down and retracts without any difficulties and includes the original metal mounting bracket and wooden dowels so it is immediately ready to hang. The front map shows the names of countries and cities while the map underneath has no labels. Since this is a school map that is probably so that students can be tested on the geography. The two separate maps are attached at the top to one dowel. You can simply loop one map behind the other to change the map on display. However, it seems that the heavier bottom of the front map was removed at a previous time and the teacher held it in place with sticky tack (see picture) which can be easily removed. We chose to leave the tack in place for shipping and handling purposes.

Very bright colors! Graphic and informative. In excellent, used condition. The maps are made of a durable synthetic materials and has a markable surface if water soluble markers are used.

It would look great in a library, den or child's room or as a prop. For home decor ideas, please visit this Pinterest board


Because of the size of this item shipping with another item would be difficult. However we may be able to combine shipping for multiple wall maps purchased. Convo us if you are interested in this option.
