London Underground platform, Northern line, Tottenham Court Road station, 1998

This shot of a platform in Tottenham Court Road station on the Northern line gives a view encompassing the distinctive Tottenham Court Road station mosaic tilework on the left, the green accent lines of the station along the left and right walls and around the tunnel entrance, and the typical elements you’ll find at most platforms: The station name in London Underground roundels, vending machines, emergency call telephones, benches, huge adverts on the wall next to the track, more adverts on most every other vertical surface…and litter. There are no trash bins down in the London Underground, due to fears of bombs being placed in them by terrorist groups (previously the IRA, and now anti-Western extremist groups like al-Qaeda).
