Quotation from Walt Whitman: 'Leaves of Grass'
Platforms 2 and 3 of Dorridge Station are served by a compact waiting room, as seen in Row17's photo SP1674 : Dorridge Station. Its windows have been used to display quotations from poems that might have particular resonance with commuters. The technique used is not evident: it might be printed clear plastic applied without bubbles, if that's possible, or Letraset (adhesive letters) applied directly to the glass, or perhaps the glass has been screen-printed. Most of the quotations are arranged to be read from inside but a few can be read from outside. It is not known who undertook this unusual and pleasing exercise.
