        I will post more details later.

        The size of the file is 1.8Mb, so I could not upload the image full-sized directly

            The map of Algeria is from a world atlas published in 1665 by Joan Blaeu (in Amsterdam). The atlas comprised 594 maps in 11 volumes. It was the largest and most expensive book of the 17 century. I have the copy of a volume and obviously not the original one.

            The maps, above, were made by hand in Vienna.

                  No Problem Shotokan, I was encouraged by the goal of Antar Yahia to do something for Algeria, so I finally posted the map... and there are some people here who thinks that football should be haram!

                  I did not want to watch the game live but later I watched it 3 times and every day I watch the goal at least three times. It is very motivating.... Football is just a game when we lose but not when we win.

                    Antar Yahia!!

                    Wow that Goal!!! I noticed my brother doing the same, each time I find the link with Hafid Deradji' comments open when he connects! and I watch it after him again and again! It was so powerful and beautiful!! I prefered to put my head-phones to listen to other things when the match started I watched the match later ..I knew when we scored a goal! and at the end that we won!! the noise outside was louder!!

                    SK I know it’s not sport thread, back to the topic

                    I found this video about ‘une Decouverte de ruines’ in Algiers

                          Algerians, serving in the French army during the First World War

                          American picture, made by photographers of the Underwood & Underwood Agency.
                          The caption reads that these soldiers are nicknamed Terrible Turcos.
                          The term Turcos was used not just for people from Turkey, but also for North-Africans.
                          On the reverse of this card there is another text:
                          "These soldiers are impetuous fighters, and the difficulty the French generals find in their employment
                          is to hold them back at times when to charge the enemy is foolhardy."
