London Underground Picture Competition

And the winner is.......

Ah, it's quite nice to have a clear cut winner to the
competition for once.

I asked where the following pictures taken and there was a bonus point if you could also guess what the person in the second picture was doing:

London Underground Station Tiles

Anthony "Underground Masker" Smith was the only person who gave the correct answer to both parts: "The first picture is at Leicester Square. The sign is in the window of the control room opposite the Piccadilly line ticket barriers (between exits 1 and 3).

The second picture is of the end of the hallway between the Bakerloo platforms at Paddington. The man is operating a Greathead tunnelling shield. He appears to be moving one of the panels that expose the rock face. Either that, or he is actually using a pickaxe or something to do the tunnelling - but if he's doing that, then they haven't drawn it very well. It doesn't look like he would achieve much leverage in that posture!

Well done Anthony, let me know if you want either What's in Name or a stick of Tube rock as your prize.

The prize for the next Friday competition will be something I bought at the Acton Depot Museum and it's not going to be one of the many "Way out" and "roundel" stickers they were selling for 10p!
