Seven metro map mugs

Metro Map Mugs

Many transit operators have stores selling souvenirs but few of those paraphernalia are stylish enough to be worth collecting. Official coffee mugs with subway maps on them are available in just a few cities. User Falubaz has sent in this photo of the mugs he has managed to come by on his various cosmopolitan journeys. Of course, you could go to the corner store that copies anything for you on a mug, but what's that compared to officially authorized dishwasher-safe quality items obtained from different corners of the world?

Origin: Falubaz, 2011. Clockwise from top: New York, Kuala Lumpur, Taipei, Berlin, Los Angeles, Paris, London. Click here for larger version.

Three Cities Coupled

Helsinki has an uncommon advertising on one of the city's metro trains. The orange train has been made up partially to look like New York's subway and partially like London's tube. This is an ad of Finland's biggest newspaper Helsingin Sanomat saying that "you can also read news from these cities" in that newspaper.

Origin: Image found at seisake.net. More photos: 1, 2, 3
