Parts of the London Underground are looking beautiful at the moment. They're spending billions of pounds on upgrading the stations and the trains, but whilst it's happening some stations look like building sites. My favourite part right now is the walkway from the Victoria Line at King's Cross, all the ads have been pulled down and the walls rendered a wonderful grey. Personally I think they should just leave it like that.

    by the way, how do you get a larger image on your blog? even on a large size setting, i can only get a smaller size image than these..

  7. Oh my, I saw that exact same one in the last picture on Saturday night! I remember thinking how cool it was, with all the layers. I think they should definitely leave it like that! I love the mosaics at Finsbury Park and Tottenham Crt Rd too.
