Before Getting involved in the project you might like to read the full post: A New Subterranean Map of London
When thinking about London Underground, most people will relate to the tube system and their memories of events whilst on it, or to a crypt, basement or tunnel. This is all fine. London Transport Museum would like this blog to be a platform for expression in relation to subterranean places as well as history, archeology and comments. From your comments, I hope to find certain patterns or strands that reveal the histories of London’s people in relation to the geography of the place.
A few open questions to consider:
- When you think about what is underground in London, what do you see?
- What spaces fascinate you?
- What discoveries have you made both in fact and fiction?
- What rumors of ‘secret’ underground infrastructure have you heard about?
- What does the ‘underworld’ mean to you?
- Your idea of the ‘uncanny’?
- What are the stereotypes and impressions that you hold of certain areas?
- What is your concept of what is ‘underlying’?
- London is a palimpsest of a multitude of histories, what do you want to see on a subterranean map of London?
