Underground Erudition

I love it when the London Underground shows that it's run by people rather than a bunch of androids. Thanks to
Mags for sending me to a picture by Intolerator who saw some waggish Tube staff, had been entertaining with their temporary "service information" signage.

As Intolerator said "Nice to see a bit of personality mixed with education on the Underground - this was at Stamford Brook station.".

The care and attention with this sign rocks. Note the little circles that dot the "i's" and the arrows that just point to the "born this day" dates. Only some words are underlined so that we're really supposed to pay attention to those. The randomness of the facts, putting the publication of Huckleberry Finn, with the first cow to ever fly and be milked on an aircraft is also a delight.

If anyone else passes through Stamford Brook, let me know if they do this every day and if you get a chance to spot them, please take a picture.

Dan Hon also saw a particularly random, yet lovely, sign at Warwick Avenue Tube Station.

Wonder if was one of the things that made life for Duffy particularly hard when she wrote Warwick Avenue? "When I geeeeeet to Warwick Avenooooo, Please watch out for the cheese signs ooooon the Tooooobe".
