Piccadilly Circus tube station - tribute to Frank Pick, taken 15 days ago
Frank Pick (1878 1941) qualified as a solicitor in 1902, then worked at the North Eastern Railway, before moving to the Underground Electric Railways Company of London (UERL) in 1906; he became joint assistant managing director in 1921 and managing director in 1928. He was the chief executive officer and vice-chairman of the London Passenger Transport Board from its creation in 1933 until 1940.

Pick had a strong interest in design and its use in public life. He commissioned eye-catching commercial art, graphic design and modern architecture for the London Underground, including the first versions of the roundel and the typeface still used today LinkExternal link .
