This is the cover of my great-grandmother Blanche Lamon's geography book when she was 14 years old in 1901. I received this as a scan from my Dad's cousin Mike O'Brien last year, the original book is well over a 100 years old.

I've spent the week covering the first half of the UN Conference on the Standardization of Geographical Names. Perhaps my geography interest comes from Blanche.
