LONDON ~ TUBE ~ STATIONS ~ A🧡B🧡C🧡 ~ AN ALPHABET SERIES !



 

THE LONDON TUBE MAP (2019) IS AN ICON OF CLASSIC DESIGN

THE VIDEO SHOWS THE HISTORIC EVOLUTION OF THE LONDON TUBE

 

ANGEL

ANGEL is named for a very old & Famous London Inn

Staging post on The Great North Road ~ noted for its GIN !

Mentioned in OLIVER TWIST by Charles Dickens ~ no less

Then LYONS CAFF & now a BANK ~ that IS Progress I guess ? !

 

BAYSWATER

The derivation of BAYSWATER ~ both mytical & strange

A Horse was given to Four Brothers by Emperor Charlemagne !

Only one could drive ~ so the other three sat behind

And when they did the horse grew LONGER ~ MAN it blows yer mind !

The name of the Horse was BAYARD ~ nick-name for a Horse

And BAYSWATER became the name of the Horses Watering Source !

 

CANARY WHARF

CANARY WHARF has nuffin ~ No nuffin ~ to do wif BIRDS 

It is just anovver example of ~ the precociousness of WORDS ! 

CANARY ISLES were named from CANIS (Latin word for DOG)

And CANARY WHARF was the BANANA & FRUIT importing PORT !

 

Thanks for visiting ~ comments welcome ~ Love A & B  🧡💙🧡💙🧡

 

The LONDON TUBE SYSTEM has a fascinating History ~ see Video.

The Stations all have fascinating NAMES and they were used extensively

as AIR RAID SHELTERS in WW2 (1939 - 45) and saved many lives.

Every LONDONER worships the *UNDERGROUND* and London Relations

of mine (BRIAN) have a framed map of the *UNDERGROUND* on their 

Dining Room wall ! ANGELA was raised in LONDON so she has a very

good working knowledge of the TUBE !  Since moving to ESSEX with

my PARENTS ~ I (BRIAN) am learning to be *London Underground Man*

We NEVER EVER take our cars into LONDON ! We take the Train into

Liverpool Street and TUBE or BUS from there ~ AMEN !
