I never was any good at remembering birthdays.
Yesterday was the London Underground’s 150th birthday. That’s right – the Tube began services on January 9, 1863 with a 3.5 mile steam-powered journey between Paddington and Farringdon. Read more about the impact of the Tube on literature, music, and art in The Telegraph. Check out 150th Anniversary events at the London Transport Museum’s website. Celebrate by browsing their excellent poster collection online. There was a special Google Doodle yesterday for the birthday, but alas, it was only in the UK – I was a bit miffed.
