Jigsaw puzzles have always been a means to travel.
The very first jigsaw puzzles were designed to teach geography to children. Called “dissected maps,” their (non-interlocking!) pieces were cut along the borders of counties, provinces, or nations. When assembled, they showed England, Europe, or the known world.
But a puzzle can take you anywhere. Anywhen.
So we’re going back to the 1930s and ‘40s with our vintage travel ocean liner jigsaw puzzle.
The years after the Great Depression saw an explosion in puzzle popularity as people sought out peaceful, fun, and affordable ways to spend time together. Puzzlers of the time were delighted by other innovations, too: “interlocking pieces” and “machine cut.” Suddenly, puzzles were more colorful, more accessible, more fun and relaxing than ever before.
