World’s Largest Unmounted Globe
“World’s Largest Unmounted Globe rests in the fountain pool of Explorers Hall, National Geographic Society headquarters, Washington, D. C. Like earth, it rotates on its tilted axis. Eleven feet from pole to pole, the 1,100-pound orb is an exact enlargement of the Society’s 12-inch globe.”
I got this card along with a couple of other old postcards from Lori, whom I met on Postcrossing. She found them inside a book in a thrift store! They did not fit in with her collection, but it turns out that she collects postcards from baseball stadiums, and I just happened to have a couple of Turner Field postcards to send her way.
