Symmetry and recursion, all thanks to advertising

Thanks to the miracle of advertising, we have a bank on a tram…

…and a bus stop on a bus stop.

If you’re curious, the bus stop picture is portraying the 811/812 route on “Main Street”.

Unfortunately the bus stop in the picture doesn’t appear to have another advert with a bus stop on it. Which means it’s not really recursive.

Happily the bus stop sign is nowhere near as faded as some of them are.

    The bus stop has a curved roof but the one with the waterfall has a flat roof. What does the blue sign on the white van say ?

    In order to understand recursion, you must understand recursion
