Old Street Tube in Whiteboard Message Wars

Hipsters hold onto your hats (or flat caps, beanies or whatever the current Hoxton headwear of the moment is), as Old Street London Underground station are taking on
Shoreditch London Overground station in a battle for "Message of the Day".

Old Street Tube Message of the Day

I saw the above on the way into work this morning. Good to see this starting (I hope it's a start), but I expect they'll need to be a bit more like the ones at Shoreditch to cut it with commuters at Old Street. It is after all home of Silicon Roundabout (London's version of Silicon Valley - sort of) and as TimeOut magazine tweeted not long ago "#lifeinlondon is going out in Shoreditch and becoming convinced that Skins is a documentary".

Still apart from the lack of apostrophes it's a good start and I'm looking forward to seeing how they develop!  I'll keep a record of the Old Street Tube's Messages of the Day here.

If you'd like to see what Shoreditch station have been up to, their message boards have been catalogued by board scribe. Here's the latest:
