An Unusual Map Walks In
The most unusual map we've ever encountered recently walked (literally) into our gallery. A nice young woman mentioned in
the course of conversation that she loved maps so much that she had one tattooed on her foot.
It's a map of the Chicago Transit Authority elevated system. She is a frequent user of the El lines and finds the map to
be handy. She has even used it to give directions.
For those not from Chicago, the picture shows the map with north at the top. The individual lines are correctly colored.
You can compare it with the CTA's on-line map:
