World Maps

  1. Errors: Republic of Ireland NO LONGER a colony of UK from 1940’s, therefore maps showing it to be so in 1959 and 1974 are incorrect.

    • I don’t see the problem. This is correct on the maps, Alaska was originally settled by the Russians who then sold their claim to it to the USA. Bet they regret that now..
