There were three ships named Yankee, a Ketch, a Brigantine, and a Schooner cover in the pages of the Nat Geo.  The first and third images you posted were of the Ketch, the correct ship, but the middle image is of the Brigandine. (A lot more sails.)

Thanks Scott for the kind comment.  Tom Wilson alerted me to the treasure trove of images posted by Phil Riviere, including most of the maps that are in the articles of the old magazines.  So what I am doing is largely repeating what he did.  I guess what I am adding are some maps that were missing from his collection, and I am titling them just as they were in the original issue (for better searching), and I am putting them together in their own albums.  So maybe I am not adding that much to what Phil did.  Still I am glad you liked it.  I love history, and I love maps even more, so I am enjoying this project immensely.  One recent map I copied is "The New Germany As Limited by the Peace Treaty" from June 1919.  That map has a lot to do with the reasons for the outbreak of WWII, so I am going to read the article that goes with that one.  I want to flesh out more of what I already know of that map.  And I am curious if and how much that article presages the war that comes 20 years later.  Take care.  Bill

Hello Scott, I finished the in article maps from NG issues from the 1910s.  Phew!  Only 12+ more decades to go ?!?  You are right.  That decade is rich in exploration and discovery, history too.  Take Care.  Bill

Thanks Scott! I love having them to show my nephew a slice of life of the past. There needs to be some context for very early issues, but it's all important!

Thanks for information. My youngest kids are 8 and 13. They love learning about the world and our civilization. They are also into a lot of sports.

Nice homage to Bill Anders.  His photo, "Earthrise" was inspirational.
