Oxford Circus Underground Timewarp

Martin Belam by Martin Belam, 20 October 2005

There is currently some refurbishment work going on at Oxford Circus Underground station, and as you descend towards the Northbound Bakerloo and Victoria line platforms you suddenly drift back in time over 15 years. The work has exposed two panels of adverts that must date from back in 1989, since one of them is advertising a New Year's Day Andy Sheppard gig from 1990.

The 1990s were fifteen years ago? Thanks for aging me in the space of a sentence! :(
