Unusual London Underground Clocks

Did you know that the Tube has a variety of unusual clocks on the system? Up until now, the most unusual one I had seen was the one at Bethnal Green London Underground station from the 1940's.

JazCummins twittered this to me and I thought it was pretty unique. However, far from being the only one on the system, there's a number with the roundel design.

Bowroaduk has a whole collection of London Underground Clocks on Flickr including roundels for numbers at Redbridge (above) and Gants Hill.

There are also clocks encased in roundels such as the ones at South Wimbledon Tube and Tooting Broadway

His collection is well worth a visit and I'd be interested to hear if you've spotting any other unusual clocks on the Tube.

I wonder if anyone can identify where the photo of this encaged clock was taken? Russell James Smith took it and said "I thought all these cables "growing" around this clock looking kind of interesting. Can't remember which station it was (umm, yes I had been to the pub)."
