    1920s ‘Routefinders' showed UK drivers the roads & mileage. The technology – a curious cross between the space age and the stone age – consisted of a little map scroll inside a watch, to be scrolled as the driver moved along on the route. A multitude of scrolls could be fitted in the watch to suit the particular trip.

    Before GPS... This fantastic contraption, called the ‘Routefinder’, showed 1920s drivers in the UK the roads they were travelling down, gave them the mileage covered and told them to stop when they came at journey’s end. The technology – a curious cross between the space age and the stone age – consisted of a little map scroll inside a watch, to be ‘scrolled’ (hence the word) as the driver moved along on the map. A multitude of scrolls could be fitted in the watch to suit the particular trip the driver fancied taking.

Fun map chair. It would be so awesome to just have everything covered in maps. Travel without leaving the house.

Old maps don't just lead you to the treasure; they are a treasure in themselves. -Michelle

A gal from the 1920's. I wish I could tell her that people all over the world were seeing her picture. I think she would smile.
