Inside the tube station...

I'm not sure that when Kilburn Park tube was built in 1915 that the impression of a hobbitt hole was intended.

But the architecture has an amazing level of charm - due to the cavernous tunnelling effect of the round.

Of course what is evident from these pics and day to day use of the station is the need for a serious lick of paint - at first I thought the station had been prepared for a new paint job - but nothing has happened for so long.

I have blogged about the station earlier on but the charm of this station continues to ooze out.

I can't help but think that there is a case for some kind of florist or grocers or fruit stall outside the tube station, but not sure at all how these things get made to happen.

I've been told by a mate of mine that you need permission to take pictures inside tube stations so enjoy the sedition whilst it lasts. :-)
