So the line which separates the oriental and occidental hemispheres - what the English had to fight hard for this line! - For many centuries many countries had "their own line on the map", and for long the Paris line was the leading - remarkable that such a strong continental line couldn't be defended over time, when more or less everything else from Paris did conquer the world - the great and easy metric and kilogram systems, SI-units, house number systems and court rules... and so the Greenwich line, on top of all it... ;-) Very nice educative photo for us in the rest of the world.
