Reminds me of Spirograph.

You may also like my ex-colleague Dave Nuttall's view on "hidden maps in everything" - he's wacky but sooooooo inspirational. The TEDx video is well worth a watch.

I thought of Spirograph as well when I saw this this morning.

An age thing? ;)

I've always thought the Gravelly Hill junction a classic thing.
Mind you I think the same thing about the railway lines at Clapham Junction :)

My first thought was Spirograph.

Yes, it probably is an age thing.

What were those things called; sort of plastic strings you wove together and often used as key chains?

I don't think that's correct. It was something else.
