The London Underground is such an iconic part of the city that it’s hard to imagine London without it.
Since its inception in 1863, it’s been helping workers along their commute, taking tourists to see the sights, and bringing citydwellers home for tea, all with its classic seat fabrics and calls to mind the gap.
But the Tube has been through some changes over the years.
Back in the 1970s, for example, yes, you’d still get the drunken dancing on the Northern Line, but you’d also spy the driver smoking a pipe. There weren’t contactless card payments back then – you’d need to fish around in your pockets for a 20p coin.
To transport us back to that time, photographer Mike Goldwater has published London Underground 1970-1980, a book that – as the name suggests – is filled with pictures of our underground railroad system back in the day.
