Fair Warning - Political segregation, mechanical maps, and migration
By Sophie Warnes • Issue #83 • View online
Hello! Exciting meta-news: After two years and three months, and 129 issues, Fair Warning has reached 1,000 subscribers! 🎉 It’s really nice to know that people appreciate something that takes a lot of time and effort to put together.
This week I had my MMR jab because it turns out that I (along with, I imagine, a chunk of other people my age) missed my second mumps injection because of how they administered them, so have been vulnerable for about 25 years. Great. I thought this chart on vaccination coverage in England was kind of interesting. Please vaccinate your children :)

How have the boundaries of the US changed over time? James TB Ives made this mechanical map in 1896 to show the changes to boundaries, from 1800 up until 1893. I couldn’t find out much about it but here’s a bit more detail about the map. I’ve never seen a mechanical map before! (BTW, you might do what I did and lose yourself for a while in those AMAZING rare maps on that second website. Incredibly detailed plan for the Battle of Wounded Knee, for instance.)
