This is a cut-out map of France as its boundaries were in November 1918. The text reads: “Enfant, voilà ton pays. Cartographe S. G. E. Brevet Français no. 569237. Frontieres du 11 Novembre 1918. Médaille d'Or Exposition de Millau 1923. Médaille de Vermeil Concours Lépine 1923.” It appears to have been entered in a competition of maps of France.
