Description: A political map of Africa, as it was in 1903, showing European land claims after the Berlin Conference in 1885. The lack of natural boundaries, that is, boundaries along rivers, mountains, or native lands, shows the European system of arbitrary boundaries established along cadastral lines. Major cities and trade routes are shown. Inset maps show details of the Cape Verde Islands, South Africa, and the Suez Canal.
