Map of Europe by George Philip & Son Ltd. with lines in ink showing the tracks of all total solar eclipses crossing Europe during the 20th century.

Map of Europe by George Philip & Son Ltd marked with the paths of totality for all total solar eclipses visible in this area during the 20th century. The map was modified by the drawing office of the Science Museum for an exhibition held in 1927. The display at the Science Museum in South Kensington was to celebrate the total solar eclipse that was going to pass over North Wales and North West England that year.
