Found: A Map Of The Entire Internet, As Of 1973

It fit on one sheet of paper.



Going through old papers my dad gave me, I found his map of the internet as of May 1973.

The entire internet.
Many people forget that the internet was invented in 1969. At this point, it was only used for military and government purposes only. Then in 1973, the internet expanded to other locations such as research universities and private companies. However, there were still so few internet users that a map of the entire internet network was sketched out on one piece of paper.
