Vintage Motoring Maps

Apologies in advance, but it seems my inner nerd has hijacked my computer and will be writing this post.

Google Maps. Boring!

Nokia phones with some kind of mapping application. Whatever!!

Sat Nav in the car. Who needs it!?

You cannot beat the pleasure of unfolding a dog-eared map and pouring over it to find your destination.

It really is one of life's most satisfying pleasures.

I suspect I'm not alone in feeling like this.

Jon Hicks from Hicks design has set up a lovely Flickr page of old motoring maps.

Click here to take a look.

It's well worth a few moments of your time. Honest!
