I don’t know whose idea it was, in 1979, to make cute little square-shaped puzzles of the Bay area, but I love them for it. I found this gem at the Depot for a song. I think it was fifty cents. But I have gotten far more than fifty cents’ worth of pleasure out of it!
I put it together last week, locking the freeways and bridges into each other one by one.
I trimmed a piece of cardboard and glued the puzzle on to create a bit of a mount and mat. Thankfully, the pieces held together really well. I’m planning to hang it in our living room from this little black ribbon.
I love these little inlays. And that old school font.
Is there anything better than a vintage map? In puzzle form?! I don’t think so.
