Tube Photo of the Week

I'm lucky living in Kew and working in the West End, as if I see any "How to get to" signs at my London Underground stations they're to nice places like Kew Gardens or tourist spots or theatres. So I felt for
nicasaurusrex who saw the following sign on when leaving Leytonstone Tube station.

How do I get to... by nicasaurusrex

As she said "Leytonstone didn't exactly fill me with hope."

Leytonstone Tube was also the home of one of the best (or is that worst) Tube fashion victims I saw:

But on the plus side it does have a series of wonderful Hitchcock mosaics, albeit in the badly lit underpass.

Perhaps the staff at the Tube could have added a note to have a look at those mosaics on the way, to brighten up your walk to the job centre, hospital or benefits office.
