All at Sea 3

There are also some great vintage maps on display in the “Travellers and Traders” exhibition at the Western Australian Maritime Museum. This one dates from the 1620s and shows the (then) recent discoveries of Dirk Hartog.

This map was also included in a Dutch painting from the 1660s. The original painting was destroyed during World War 2, and now exists as a black and white photograph.You can see more maps from the exhibition at our Instagram page, onthemap42.
