Bathroom floor

Neil Ackroyd stumbled on this innovative use of Ordnance Survey mapping in his Barbican hotel room.

“Now that’s a bathroom floor – won’t throw my wet towel on this beauty”

There is something especially delightful about being able to step over the Thames when you get out of shower.

Intrigued by Merlin’s Cave in old Clerkenwell as shown NW corner on my toilet map !

A compass globe map thing

This compass (or is it a globe?) is in the entrance to Jaffa port. It shows the distance and direction of a series of cities from Tel Aviv/Jaffa. You stand looking out at the sea and can see many of the cities surrounding you. The top pic is taken facing the sea and the one below was taken from the other direction because it does a bit more detail.

I like the way that the city markers run off the edge of the map and are embedded in the tiles surrounding it. The last two are Gibraltar and Tangiers.

Massive Tennessee state map

Raf sent us this pic of the Tennessee Map Plaza in Nashville

And another candidate for #mapsinthewild @StevenFeldman the giant state map of Tennessee, in Nashville (had to take a screenshot of Gmaps, no ground picture good enough) 

I think this is a fair candidate for waiving my principle of “no screenshots” but if anyone has a drone or fancies hanging from the bottom of a helicopter to get a closer up shot then do let me know.
