When a diagram is better than a map

Long-time subscribers to Travel Between the Pages are well aware that I have an unusal interest in London’s Underground map. I can pinpoint my fascination with the well designed plans to my first visit to the British capital and my surprise at the ease of using the network due to the clever maps of the system. Over the years, as a book collector and bookseller, I’ve seen dozens of transit maps in travel guidebooks. I’ve even sold some early UERL system maps. So, I was happy to run across the entertaining and informative video below on the evolution of maps.

Comedian Jay Foreman takes a deep dive into the history of the map for the London Underground, which is also known as the Tube, in a subterranean installment of his “Unfinished London” series.
