We begin to answer the question of which continua can be homeomorphic to an inverse limit with a single upper semi-continuous bonding map from [O, 1) to 2(O,l). Several continua including (0, 1) x (0, 1) and all compact manifolds with dimension greater than one cannot be homeomorphic to such an inverse limit. It is also shown that if the upper semi-continuous bonding maps have only zero dimensional point values, then the dimension of the inverse limit does not exceed the dimension of the factor spaces.
