The Map that Saved the London Underground


The 1914 Wonderground Underground Map, a mixture of cartoon, fantasy, and topological accuracy, by Macdonald Gill. 


I love this map, and this article!  Of course, one of the reasons I love the article (link below) is that it's about the London Underground, and it incorporates a lot of interesting historical background and contextual detail.  Another reason is that it is written in a rather meandering way, going off on tangents that eventually lead back to the story at hand.  Naturally, I admire this style of writing!  And, most unusually, I have nothing more to add.  Thanks, Andrew M., for sending the link to the map, which allows you to zoom around the map and see all the incredible detail.  http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-25551751

  1. Hollywood star and big-screen superhero from the recent Marvel blockbuster Avengers: Infinity War, Chris Hemsworth, will serve as the honorary starter of the 102nd running of the Indy 500, which will take place on Sunday, May 27.

    Hemsworth will stand atop the famous yard of bricks at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, where he will wave the green flag and kick off the legendary 500-mile race for 33 racing car drivers who will duel it out for a taste of the winner's milk. Of course, they must first endure 200 arduous laps around the 2.5-mile banked oval.

    The Verizon IndyCar Series Indianapolis 500 in the Memorial Day weekend in the Indianapolis Motor Speedway is the largest sporting facility in the world.
