The "Café Wall" Optical Illusion

YouTube link.

Similar in principle to the "tile illusion" previously posted at Neatorama, this one was named after a pattern noticed on the wall of a café on St Michael's Hill in Bristol, England.  This illusion would make a nice tabletop conversation piece if it were commercially available.

The Beaudry subway station in Montreal, inaugurated in 1966, had this exact illusion with the tiles on the interior walls. Unfortunately, it was renovated in 1999 and they scraped the illusion design.

It's named after the tiled wall of a cafe in Bristol, England - just round the corner from my house.
There's more about it here, with a picture showing the wall:
