Ah, that time when you find one of your Flickr photos showing up as popular because it appeared on Tumblr.
The lights of London’s Beech Street tunnel, as picked up by black-and-white.

The red structure is the remains of the original Greathead shield used to tunnel the Waterloo & City. It was left in place in 1898 and rediscovered in 1987. #tubegeek (Taken with Instagram at Bank Station)

'narrow'

staircase at Greenwich Foot Tunnel.

Because of ‘improvement’ works, it’s half the size it usually is.

Factor in constant stream of cyclists carrying cycles up & down staircase? It’s a nightmare.

But reminds me of 1997-2000 when the DLR didn’t reach South and this was the only means under the river from the Isle of Dogs to Greenwich.

There used to be a ferry. But millions of years ago. I’ll tell you that another time.

'tunnel'

Deep.

This section was damaged by a bomb in World War 2.

Was repaired with metal sections.

These are they.

The tunnel is being ‘restored’, but it has always been ‘under restoration’.

Oh. And Woolwich Foot Tunnel is closed.

underlondon:

The Grand Entrance Hall (Brunel Museum).
“It was the oldest tunnel in the London Underground. It was the  first tunnel anywhere under a river and it was the birthplace of the  Tube, not just in London, but anywhere. For the non-specialist visitor it was the first underwater shopping arcade, a festival and fun fair. There were people dancing to minstrel music, there were tightrope  walkers, music from steam organs and a troop of performing horses. It  was like a 19th century rave.”

'Octagon Above”
The entrance to Wapping station, refreshed ticket hall & facilities.
Here’s the station name in overground style, with a restored original feature of the below thames tunnel, the barrel entrance. 
The tunnel goes under the thames to Rotherhithe. My next destination.

The Tunnel

One third of the whole tunnel. I may go back there again to snap some more.

Guess it’s always evolving. Art over art.

The Tunnel sign

Somewhere beneath Waterloo Station lies this tunnel where graffiti is king.
