to lumber yards
and baseball cards
. There are also dedicated exhibits, like Ansel Adams's Suffering a Great Injustice
, images of Japanese American internment, and this huge collection entitled Origins of American Animation
. How to make an American Quilt
Staying in the US, some Florida postcards

, the inimitable Elsa MacDougall's take on Floridan life). T-shirt

. Or vice versa.
Elsewhere. Big map of Baghad
via this Me-fi thread
about these cartographic bookmarks

is a bizarre parenting manual that apparently draws explicit parallels between corporate management and parenting skills. Board meetings, fiscal responsibility and all.

, currently tearing up nearby Kings Cross, has some good construction
photos on its site. Vaguely related, an archive of changing tube map
design. Midwinter and Festival pottery for sale
