An old plan of Piccadilly Circus Underground Station.

I’m away on a 2-week tour in the near future and so this shorter than usual post is just to help fill the gap before, during or after I come back.

The incredible print below is of Piccadilly Circus Underground Station and dates from the late 1920’s.  It illustrates the multitude of tunnels needed to make a busy but far from the most complicated London Underground Station.


The amount of detail is incredible and it’s a good reminder of just what people could (and still can) do without the aid of computers.
