20th Century London caption: The station in this picture is Tufnell Park. It was opened in 1907 on the original section of the Charing Cross Euston & Hampstead Railway. Signs reading Hampstead Railway are displayed on the outside walls above each entrance. The station was designed by Leslie Green in the Arts & Crafts style. It remained unchanged until the Underground Ticketing System (U.T.S.) was installed in the late 1980s. The U.T.S. is the gate system that reads the magnetic strip on a ticket to give access to the platforms. This photo was taken in 1921. It gives a view of the shops next to station, including a cigar shop and a hairdresser.
