More sensible signage for a pedestrian area in Bristol than in Cambridge?

The landscape behind the sign is oriented the same way on the map in this Bristol Signing scheme.

The idea at the heart of this Bristol Signage scheme is that the maps are oriented the same way as the landscape behind the map - in principle this would seemingly make them more 'legible'.

Signage and finger pointing system in Bristol (approximate location)

Bristol's finger post signing and map board system - part of their bid to become City of Culture 2008 which was won by Liverpool - (because they had the Beatles!)
