Caledonian Road underground station: platform-level signage
Caledonian Road underground station: platform-level signage
At the time that this stretch of the Piccadilly Line was built, as one of the early deep-level tubes, a visual and conceptual grammar of signage was still being worked out by the companies involved. Caledonian Road enshrines an experiment that did not catch on, signs pointing towards the then-termini to indicate which direction a particular platform's trains would be going.
