Not on the London Underground

More fuel for the Tube's solicitors

I think London Underground's solictors ought to get their passports at the ready to track down this collection of London Underground roundels, not seen on the London Underground. From Albuquerque to Vancouver, you've been sending in pictures from around the world.

Ian was collecting roundels in Germany while he was over for the World Cup (although his much nicer World Cup pictures can be found here). My favourite I don't think would have TfL's legal bods chomping on the bit too much with a rather cartoonish version of the logo from Munster.

However they would probably have more of a case with this one

Penny Lane - Dortmund, Germany taken by Ian

I almost expected it to say Oldie English Music. But Penny Lane as far as I know is in Liverpool - well at least the Penny Lane in the song is. Unless there's another Penny Lane in Dortmund.

The logo is a great inspiration for ratty looking clothing shops as Ian's final picture illustrates

From Germany we go much further afield to Asheville in North Carolina, where Geoff spotted a "Grill & Pub" called Charlotte Street

Ross Younger who's currently working in Vancouver spotted "the so called Carestation" from a bus. I know how difficult pictures when you're moving, as I spotted on while I was on a train in California, but couldn't get my camera out in time.

Not sure how wild I'd feel about going to a walk-in-clinic with the Tube logo on it!

Finally, I think the furthest away from London, is Tina Threadgill's "Bombay Grill" Indian Restaurant in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

One can only imagine that the owners were from London.

Many, many thanks to you all for sending these in. If anyone else has ones to add to the ever growing collection please email me.
