Maida Vale Station is roughly midway on the Bakerloo line and opened in 1915 as part of the extension of the line to Queen's Park. The station is a listed building being of architectural and historical interest.
Inside the building, above the concourse are two mosaic roundels.
On the outside the station is tiled in the familiar ox-blood red with the name in large letters above the curved windows.
Round the corner on Randolph Avenue the windows still display the signs for Cigars and Tobacco
Other types of housing close to the station include two rows of Mews. This is Elgin Mews South of the station.
And Elgin Mews North of the station.
On the same road is the house where David Ben-Gurion (1886-1973),the first Prime Minister of Israel lived as a young man.
On the wall of St George's Catholic school is this memorial plaque to a very brave man who came to the aid of one of his pupils who was being attacked outside the school by a young man with a knife. He saved the pupil's life but sadly lost his own. The murderer was found and convicted.
On the way back to the station I walked past this early 20th Cent building which in the 1930s became the BBC Maida Vale Studios home to the BBC Symphony Orchestra and the BBC singers,
Arriving back at the station I saw this original sign showing the stations the tube would stop at going South. The stations in bold print are the ones that connect with other underground lines.
