The massive quotes post from Uncle Steve.
The London Transport Museum has nifty little bears wearing sweaters with station names on. The official London Underground (aka the Tube) map bears absolutely no relation to real distance or scale, and evolved from a design by an electrical engineer called Harry Beck in 1931. Go read the Wikipedia entry on London Underground. Also check out the Poems in the Underground program (posters with poems on are placed between advertisments on the trains).
Anyone interested in a game of Mornington Crescent?
