The geometry of central place theory is shown to be a (small) proper subset of the geometry of fractal curves: curves of fractional dimension which have only recently been displayed in a graphically provocative manner as computer-generated images (Mandelbrot 1977; 1983). The exact procedure for making this correspondence between a theory from economics and geography with one from pure mathematics is displayed in the text. It lends itself to replication by hand or by machine. As is usual with alignments of this sort, a wide variety of related projects follows naturally; some of these are indicated at appropriate points in the text.
