You are looking at an old school pull down map, that is 58" X 52" by the maker
of Nystrom. First layer is of World. Nystrom makes maps for the teaching of
social studies and to help students understand their world and relationship
All maps that have the title "Pull Down Map" is equipped with an original
spring loaded mechanism that works as it should and allows the map to be pulled
down and then retracts back up much like a roller shade window blind. If the
map has the title description "Cloth Map" it will come equipped with a wooden
dowel at the bottom and top of the map and does not retract because it is not
equipped with a spring loaded mechanism.
If you should still have any questions please feel free to ask.
