Clapham Common

Original sign at the entrance to Clapham Common station, Northern Line, on 20th May 2013. This opened in 1900 with the first extension of the City & South London Railway, the world's first deep-level tube line that had opened between King William Street and Stockwell in 1890. Not until 1926 was the line further extended south to Morden. The line then became known as the Morden-Edgware Line until 1937 when the LPTB renamed it the Northern Line, notwithstanding that a lengthy section of the line is in SOUTH London, as here at Clapham Common. One of London Transport's little jokes that has persisted to the present day.
