Fascinating photo comparison between Covent Garden Tube in 1973 and 2013. So much has happened in Britain over those 40 years that it's not exaggerating to call it a social revolution - bankruptcy and bailout by the IMF, the loss of complete home-owned industries (car manufacturing, electronics, coal mining, steel production etc etc), the first woman Prime Minister (Margaret Thatcher) and 18 years of Tory rule, the Miner's strike, the emergence of Financial Services in the 1980's, Punk, and on and on and on.

Yet, Covent Garden Tube has stayed remarkably well preserved...improved in fact.
