    Re: How Globes were Made in the 1950s

    Reminds me of an old quip from the late 1960s in which an American humour magazine was poking fun at Canada and our apparent quirks:



    Why is Canada always coloured red on globes?


    From embarrassment.

    How the world has changed during my lifetime! ( for the better, no doubt). Notice that much of the world was still painted red then,(Including India, so presumably a pre-independance globe). Wonder what it will look like in 50 years time? We live in interesting and changing times!
