Geography lesson

According to Wikipedia, 'Capri is an Italian island off the Sorrentine Peninsula, on the south side of the Gulf of Naples. It has been a resort since the time of the Roman Republic.'

At the fleamarket this morning I did buy this beautifully embroidered hankie for 50 cents. The threadwork depicts the Faraglioni-three massive rocks named Stella, Mezzo, and Scopolo off the coast of Capri. The lady that sold me the hankie had not heard of Capri. The price might have been higher had she known.
