Boat Race via the Underground

photo-1Last week, I watched my first Oxford-Cambridge boat race. I got there by Tube, just like people did over 90 years ago. I imagine the experience can’t have changed too much from then until now… lots of hooting and hollering, some excellent rowing and more than a few pints while perched on the riverside!

For anyone who likes vintagey prints or the London Underground or both, the London Transport Museum in Covent Garden has a fabulous exhibit on called Poster Art 150 – London Underground’s Greatest Designs, celebrating a century and a half of the tube’s existence. More on that soon!
