Language is constantly on the move. New words are introduced, old ones become obsolete, and what is considered the correct spelling at one time is half a century later suddenly completely archaic. For place names this is no different. Thus Nijmegen was not always Nijmegen. The city has quite a few place name signs worn out for it at the current reputation; Ulpia Noviomagi, Nouimagi, Niumaga, Neomage, Nimagna, Numegen, Nymegen...

But what if we ignored that natural process completely? If the first term used for a place is carved into stone, enshrined in a notarial deed, is written in the Constitution and shouted from the roofs as the only, Eternal, unchangeable name? Then you get a card like this.

Superleuk gedaan! Lettertjes zijn wel erg klein .. je moet er echt met neus bovenop zitten om de namen te lezen.

Wat een geweldige kaart, je raakt niet uitgekeken! Sommige stations bezorgen nog wel hoofdbrekens 😉 Ik kocht er een voor mezelf en een als cadeau voor mijn zus die het ook helemaal top zal vinden. Ook prima contact met verkoper Victor: snelle reactie op mail en persoonlijke bezorging in dezelfde week!
