Not on the London Underground

Eagle eyed visitors to the blog have spotted some more Tube roundels not in their natural homes on the Tube.

The roundel often seems to be appropriated by fashion outlets and here's a couple more examples. One very close to home taken by Michael W in Jermyn Street:

He said that the whole window had Tube lines running across it as well. I'd be surprised if Charles Tyrwhitt hadn't got permission from TfL to do this as they're a reputable brand, but you never know perhaps the Tube's lawyers will be paying a visit.

The next shop's a bit further afield, so the lawyers might be a bit more keen to visit. Allan W said "I spotted this shop in Dubai yesterday. They had themed the entire shop on the Tube including the pointless inclusion of a travelator in
the store and some Tube maps with no station names

Finally we jet over to Bangalore

Callum says "Not sure if the Tube roundel is common on Indian railways, but if it is, then TfL only has to sue the second-largest organisation in the world (after the Chinese army....)"

Actually I think this must be a legitimate use as the jet setting Allan W had sent in one of the first pictures in the series from Tirusulam

Anyway, keep sightings of the roundel coming in and I'll add them to the Flickr set. Thanks again to Callum, Allan and Michael for the latest round.
