I took a tour of the disused Aldwych underground station on Sunday, organised by TFL and the London Transport Museum. Despite their no-DSLR camera policy and a ridiculous stream of explanations as to why this is the case (from something to do with ‘high resolution sensors’ to the idea that DSLR users would somehow delay the tours), I got some decent photos from my apparently-acceptable E-P1.

The station is sort of a time capsule: it was a funny little appendage to the line running south of Holborn that was planned to be extended, but users dwindled to the point where it was completely closed in 1994. It was used as an air raid shelter during the war and there’s lots of original wartime posters still on the walls.
