Central Americas (Feb 1960)

Map by Hagstrom Maps. There is a city in Panama called David. I approve of this wholeheartedly! "Central America," it bears noting is not a separate continent, but is the southernmost part of North America - the divide between North and South American is generally accepted to be the Panama Canal. As an artificial body of water, this means that the two Americas are technically one continental mass, and some geographers consider north and South to simply be one large 'supercontinent,' in the fashion of Eurasia.
