In Pictures: The Old Lift Passage at Notting Hill Gate
The lifts were removed from Notting Hill Gate station when it was redeveloped at the end of the 1950s. The old passage to the lifts themselves, however, still exists (although it is now not accessible to the public). The passage has remained untouched since that closure and, as the pictures below show, now presents an interesting snapshot of some of the advertising that graced the station towards the end of that decade.
All of these pictures are courtesy of London Underground. Several more can be found on flikr here.
Thanks to Caroline’s Miscellany for the spot.
