This is one of the original stations on London's Underground Baker Street...the very first part was opened in 1863 and linked Paddington with Farringdon. Today it has been restored in an attempt recreate how the station would have appeared in those very early days when steam was the motive power. Nowadays you can catch either the Circle Line or a Metropolitan Line Hammersmith and City train from these platforms. Picture taken on the 26th November 2004.

This is the part of Baker Street station today where you catch trains on the above ground Metropolitan Line to places like Uxbridge, Chesham, Watford, Amersham, Harrow and other north western London suburbs. Some trains end their journey here whilst others continue east through those original sections of the line to the City of London onto Aldgate East. Pictured on the 26th November 2004.

The Bakerloo Line platforms at Baker Street station on the London Underground have a distinctive silhouette of Sherlock Holmes on the tiling. The reason for this is that the fictional detective famously lived at 221B Baker Street.

THE FIRST LONDON UNDERGROUND ROUNDEL IS 100 YEARS OLD.

In 1908 the companies operating London's Underground trains agreed to have just one symbol to represent all the different lines. The famous iconic Roundel we know today however did not start to appear until the early 1920s.

The London Underground Roundel is as much a feature of London above ground as it is below. This example outside Baker Street Station was pictured in November 2008.

More pictures of LONDON UNDERGROUND marking this event can be seen on our site below.
