Not that you could tell, but our tube is actually the oldest urban subway system in the world! Love it or hate it (I hate it way more than I love it), the Tube is still one of the best things about London- not many cities in the world have a system as big and as user friendly! Though I despise the tube and how much we are forced to pay to use it, I will admit that it is pretty fascinating- which is why I am enjoying Time Out’s interactive gallery. It gives you a glimpse of what some of the tube stations looked like as far back as 1880. Though the structuring of the stations are more or less the same in each of the photos, it’s crazy to see some of the smaller changes like the surrounding stores and the fashion… there are top hats in one of them! Check it out on Timeout’s website, after the break!
