Dating of this school globe is made using two informations: 1) Mention of ‘Afrique Occidentale Francaise’ French West Africa (French: Afrique Occidentale Francaise or AOF) was a federation of eight French colonial territories in Africa: Mauritania, Senegal, French Sudan (now Mali), French Guinea, Ivory Coast, Upper Volta (now Burkina Faso), Dahomey (now Benin) and Niger. The capital of the federation was Dakar. The federation existed from 1895 to 1958. 2) Mention of ‘Israel’ This country was officially created in 1948.
