The Prime Meridian

It was on this day 13 October in 1884 that Greenwich in London was established as the universal time meridian of longitude. You gotta love the prime meridian. We have chosen a world longitude map in a range of blues showing 0 longitude through Greenwich. We really do like wrapping with maps because they are beautiful, tell a story (great for us compulsive themers) and are easy to acquire online or in new or second hand bookstores.
