At Covent Garden, the original ‘bullseye’ roundel can see seen towards the front of the westbound platform. It isn’t actually placed in position as it is slightly lower than it should be. But it is good to see. There are also surviving roundels of this type at Ealing Broadway on the District line platforms.
Coming soon will be a small series that will focus on old roundels that exist on the London Underground network – the first will focus on Tube stations that have their old and original roundels that have survived but only have a small number (mostly just one) of them in existence. Watch out for this and photos soon!
The Lego shop in Leicester Square is a fascinating place. Plenty of famous structures made of Lego! But a while ago when I passed by, I spotted something very nice to see. It was a London Underground roundel made entirely of Lego! It’s Westminster and I took a photo of it outside. Whenever you are passing by, take a look for yourself!
And here is the Lego roundel next to a Lego built Big Ben! (Looks like Sherlock Holmes is investigating!)
Here at many of the subway ramps leading from Old Street station eagle-eyed travellers will notice the increasing use of the original Johnston typeface in use. Signs to nearby locations make full use of its charm.
