Down Street

The former Piccadilly Line tube station in Down Street, Mayfair, seen here on 21 July 2005, some 73 years after closure. Opened in 1907 the station suffered due to the proximity of Hyde Park Corner and Green Park stations and closed in 1932. Down Street's claim to fame was in hosting several meetings of Churchill's war cabinet during WW2.
