1906 Isochronic Distance Chart

Travel in the slower days of 1906!  Here is an interesting map using “isochronic” lines, specifically lines depicting points which may be reached in the same number of hours or days from London in 1906.  Need to go to New York?  That will be about 8 days of travel.  San Francisco?  That will be about 15 days.  Santiago, Chile?  You are looking at over 40 days of travel.
