Animals On The Underground

 In General

I had one of those random synaptic firings after I posted the piece on TFL’s “Departure Boards” web tool – which reminded me of the excellent Animals On The Underground website.

If you’ve never encountered this, it’s a bundle of fun – and something you too can have fun with if you have a copy of the Underground diagram and a pencil…
Basically people have found the shapes of all kinds of animals in the lines of the London Underground as they’re displayed on Harry Beck’s ‘Diagram’ – or ‘map’ as it’s lazily referred to.
A few years back there were very few animals – I believe a guy called Paul Middlewick was the initiator of all this, but it seems to have blossomed more recently, and there’s a whole page of them here…
And they’ve also got some cool merchandise, which helps fund IFAW.
