1895 Stornoway chart

Fremantle

Yesterday I found a 1:18300 scale nautical chart of the Approaches to Stornoway in an antique shop in North Fremantle. It's not large, but looks nice, and reminds me both of how nice printed maps can be (on good, thick, paper) and also of Stornoway (where I spent a few days last year). I'm making a wooden clamping bar to hang it with.

Then I made a bolted-stick contraption, and hung it on the wall:
