Rosetta MacLain Garden Braille Wayfinding Map

At the Rosetta MacLain Garden in Scarborough, ON there are two maps like this. They contain braille information and a 3-D texture map for the blind. The garden itself features a “scent garden” designed to be appreciated through sense of smell and also “texture paths” with the type and pattern of stone on the paths changing in each area. All of this from the 1950s, so long before the present age of political correctness. Very innovative.
