I love London. I love the London underground (the Tube). And I love the easy to recognize, easy to follow Tube Map.

So here’s today’s Google Doodle, celebrating 150 years of the underground:

From The Londonist:

Happy (sort-of) birthday to the London Underground, which pootled into action 150 years ago today with an invite-only train ride between Paddington and Farringdon. Google is marking the milestone with the rather fine search doodle, shown above. Alas, its designers appear to have bollocksed up the Victoria line, which comes in two unconnected flavours to the east and west. That’s the trouble with Google…always gives you more options than you need.
