    Post Cleaning up an old map...

    In my day job, I work as an all purpose graphic designer for any kind of work in my small town. Everything from birthday cards to autowraps, 3D to web design and everything in between.

    Every once in a while, I get to do some map work if indirectly. Today, I'm cleaning up a water damaged map of Mission Township, LaSalle County, Illinois from an 1876 Plat Book of LaSalle County.

    This tiny rural district in northcentral Illinois is mostly insignificant. Down at the bottom left side is the tiny village of Norway, Illinois - only claim to fame is that its the first Norweigian settlement in the United States.

    When Norway was celebrating it's Centenial in 1974 - the actual King Olaf of Norway came to visit - Norway only has about 400 people. So the King stayed in my hardly more significant hometown of Ottawa. There was a parade and everything. I wonder how he actually felt of visiting this fly-speck of a farming village in the middle of nowhere?!

    Anyway, here's the map I'm working on...
