Orientation of FMC connector on SP601 board?

Is it possible to confirm the orientation of the FMC connector on this board?  The picture here is very strange.  The board we actually have (I don't have access to it right now) has the writing on the LINEAR chips upside down with respect to the word SPARTAN.  Also, on the board we actually have the FMC connector is on the left (if we orient it with the word SPARTAN up).  Now, in the hardware user guide pg 43 here, the H column of the FMC connector is on the left in the picture.


I'm designing a board that will plug into this FMC connector and now I am extremely confused about the orientation of the connector.  Is the H column closest to the edge of the board?  Or the C column?  Here is a picture of our board.

You should design you FMC mezzanine card to e compliant to the VITA 57.1 specification and it will work, including mechanically, with the SP601 and other FMC carrier cards.
