Teaching history with tentacles

Postcard about Landlordism in London in 1928

Postcard about Landlordism in London in 1928 – a topic that rings bells today with the state of the capital’s property market

Donna Seger’s post about teaching world history using octopus maps caught my attention, with its copious images like the one above from books and magazines, as well as maps and postcards, and has links to other octopus articles (tentacles across the web, clearly).

Much more fun than some of the infographics that litter many magazines and newspapers but require so much work to get anything out of.
