The Bristol M Shed map-about face

And just to prove my point on the blue style tourist information maps, here is the other side.

This is the reverse side of the information board on the last post. Presumably modern visitors cannot comprehend the north up concept, as the map is at a completely different orientation as the previous example. Perhaps car sat-navs have enabled this ability to read maps without a fixed link to north.

This map illustrates well the use of 3d depictions of buildings, a combination now found Cranes at M Shedin many tourist information boards.
