Storage Wars: CSULB Edition

The one folded back into a book. Early settlement patterns of colonists in the United States, pre-1700.

My friend David and I decided to rummage through our department’s storage pit, unearthing a ridiculous bounty of USGS Maps from the post-War era that covered everything from climate to topography, as well as innumerable other classroom treasures from over forty years ago. It’s crazy just how much physical material passed through a typical Geography department before the digital revolution; I can understand why nobody was particularly sad to transition to zeros and ones. Still, we barely found anything that wouldn’t look awesome on someone’s wall. We’re currently thinking about doing a CSULB antique map show somewhere in Long Beach this spring.

We found a beautiful hand-drawn map of Hungary on the back of a classroom map of Europe. If you had any hand in this, contact me so we can give credit.
