This map has a little zoological flaw in it. Can you spot it? There’s an illustration of a polar bear in the lower right hand corner art. Most people did not know in 1923 that polar bears only live in the northern polar regions of North America, not the south pole as well. So the polar bear was erroneously included in the art illustrating the map in it’s corners.
