London Underground Homeware

By Cate Sevilla

This week marks the 150th anniversary of the London Underground, aka The Tube. 

The very first underground journey took place between Paddington and Farringdon on the Metropolitan Railway, and TFL have used their Facebook timeline to list all of the Tube's great achievements over the last 150 years. (For example, did you know that in 1914 women were employed by UERL and the Metropolitan Railway  as "substitute workers" for men? Cool, right?)

There will be a number of events happening at the London Transport Museum to celebrate the occasion, or you could always bring a little bit of the Underground into your home.

The Transport for London shop is like a hidden gem of Tube geekery, filled with gorgeous homewares, cushions and even wallpaper. 

Here are some of my favourite items!
