The Throwback

The Throwback: Sound of the Underground, Baker Street

I remember when I first moved to London how absolutely fascinated I was by the history of the city, but most of all by the history of the London underground. By now it’s over 150 years old, and the cool thing about it, is that there are stations and sections that are still standing after 150 years. All around you is the history of Londoners and it’s wonderful to see the progression of time through the stations. Some are from the Victorian era and others are classic 1920’s build. The oldest part of the underground is around Baker Street station; it still has the original architecture and if you’re a history buff like me it’s wonderful to look at it.

And funnily enough, at the same time this photo was taken, the forties trend was massive for autumn/winter 2011, and everywhere on the high street. So what better than to combine the two into a shoot, and that is how we ended up with the photo we have here.

I do love the vintage trend and it’s something I gravitate to every time it comes back into fashion as it’s so ladylike and elegant. The original post can be found here.

Fresh out of college with an MA in Journalism, a passion for clothes, fashion and styling shoots, I was also the fashion editor of a magazine my colleagues and I set up called SCOPE magazine, which was disbanded three years ago. For now I'm just a freelance journalist and blogger.
Other than obsessing about fashion, I love theology and history, writing apocalyptic fiction (it's weird, I know!) and the occasional weeekend of horse-riding if I have the time and I don't injure myself in the process.
