Google Doodle London Underground 150th Birthday

If you're searching from Google in the UK today, take a look in the top left hand corner and you'll see that Google are celebrating the Tube's 150th birthday. Today marks the 150th anniversary of the first journey on the underground railway (although it opened to the public on 10th January 1863).

25 million Google searches in the UK will today be met with a Tube Map inspired Google logo that clicks through to a TfL Tube page! The early pioneers of the London Underground and map designer, Harry Beck would certainly be proud and I think this is one Tube Map mash up, the TfL powers-that-be will be very happy about too.
