About a year ago, maybe two, I saw a similarly-formatted but much more recent (like up to date) vertical time line map of the political parties in the USA. However, it also had arms crossing in front to symbolize shifts of factions between "left" & "right", like highway overpasses on a map.

Avatar 10:09am KP:

That Gibson Firebird is ironically a non-reverse model. That means the longer of the two "horns" (where the pickguard juts up) is on top. The originals were called reverse because that part was on bottom. The reverse is the classic style and worth more. i guess a lefthanded reverse would have been too much to ask.
Avatar 10:13am

The University of Ghana is the oldest and largest of the thirteen Ghanaian universities and tertiary institutions. It was founded in 1948[2] as the University College of the Gold Coast, and was originally an affiliate college of the University of London,[3] which supervised its academic programmes and awarded degrees. It gained full university status in 1961,[3] and now has nearly 40,000 students.
