At the Alameda Flea Market
I bargained that globe down from $30 to $20, and I don't care that it's the third or fourth globe that I own. On it, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos are simply grouped together as Indo-China, and North and South Korea don't exist; they're just one unified Korea. Beijing is called Peiping and India is pink on the map, which means it still belongs to the British. I'm thinking all this points towards it being from the late 1940s? I need someone from the Antiques Roadshow to help me out.
