London Underground posters from 1908 frequently stressed the importance of travel for women.The red and green colours of the interior of an Underground car in Always Warm and Bright 1912 echo the brilliant colours of both Karlowska’s and Ginner’s representations of London.

I love the first and last trains of the metro service because the system is often quite empty then (excluded from this are the last trains on weekends). I love it how the architecture of the stations can really shine, and you have space to appreciate it; and how the few passengers you come across suddenly become individual human beings again instead of the faceless mass that you encounter in the more rushed hours.

God love the chaps at London Transport.
Okay, I think the unofficial celebrations may be the best thing about the 50th.
