Welcome to Day 27 of “28 Photos Later”.
Here is another photo from the other side of Mornington Crescent tube station, showing one of the “Legible London” signs recently installed by Transport for London.
I find these signs helpful, even in a world of satnav and phone apps. They show local streets and landmarks, and they have two special features. First, rather than having north at the top, they use “heads-up mapping”, which means they’re orientated to face the same way as the user is facing. Then they show you a circle of “5 minutes walk from here” and “15 minutes walk from here”.
Here is a photo of another “Legible London” sign from my local neighbourhood of Marylebone.
I would have spent a lot more time lost on my Bleeding London expeditions without these signs, so thank you Legible London.
