The Animals, made up using tube lines, stations and junctions were spotted by Paul Middlewick some 15 years ago.

The original Animal, the Elephant was discovered while Paul was staring at the tube map during his daily journey to work.

Since then, the Elephant has been joined by many other Animal friends. You can meet some of them on this site by clicking the 'animals' link. More Animals are being 'discovered' all the time If you want to know more about them and what they get up to, why not join our mailing list?

Buffalo City (W3)

(E?)(L?) http://www.ingrids-welt.de/reise/sa/allgbev.htm
"Buffalo City" ist nicht "London" und liegt auch nicht in England. Die südafrikanische Stadt ist hier nur aufgeführt wegen des Namensteils "London".

Zur Verwirrung tragt bei, dass viele Städte in Südafrika seit November 2002 umbenannt wurden und wieder afrikanische Namen tragen sollen. So wurde aus: "East London" = "Buffalo City".

City of London - Rose

Die Rose "City of London" ist der Hauptstadt Englands und des Vereinigten Königreiches gewidmet.

Der Name der Stadt "London" geht auf lat. "Londinium" zurück. Der lateinische Name soll auf eine vorkeltische Bezeichnung mit der Bedeutung engl. "place at the navigable or unfordable river", zurück gehen.

GLA (W3)

"GLA" steht für "Greater London Authority".

(E?)(L?) http://www.london.gov.uk/gla/index.jsp

The GLA is a unique form of strategic citywide government for London. It is made up of a directly elected Mayor - the Mayor of London - and a separately elected Assembly - the London Assembly. There are around 600 staff to help the Mayor and Assembly in their duties.

The Mayor is London's spokesman. He leads the preparation of statutory strategies on transport, spatial development, economic development and the environment. He sets budgets for the GLA, Transport for London, the London Development Agency, the Metropolitan Police and London's fire services.

The Assembly scrutinises the Mayor's activities, questioning the Mayor about his decisions. The Assembly is also able to investigate other issues of importance to Londoners, publish its findings and recommendations, and make proposals to the Mayor.

London Underground Logo (W3)

(E?)(L?) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/London_Underground
Das 1913 von Edward Johnston entworfene Logo der "London Underground" ähnelt der Markierung, die als Lademarke an Schiffen angebracht wurde. Der Kreis soll auch die Röhre (engl. "tube") symbolisieren, durch die die U-Bahn fährt. Auf dem Querbalken wird jeweils die U-Bahn-Sation in einer speziellen Sans-Serif-Schrift angegeben.


London Transport's roundel logo and tube map are instantly recognisable by any Londoner, almost any Briton, and many people around the world.

The logo was designed by Edward Johnston in 1913. It resembles part of the mark legally required to be painted on the sides of ships, called the Plimsoll line, a previous British invention. The logo refers to travel through a circular opening as well. Johnston also designed London Transport's distinctive sans-serif typeface in 1916. The typeface is noted for the curl at the bottom of the minuscule "l", which other sans-serif typefaces have discarded. Much of the reason for the widespread recognition of the London Transport logo is its ubiquitous usage on London Transport documents and signage. It is used for all tube station signs (where the station name appears on the horizontal bar), for example, as well as on in-carriage maps.

Since TfL took control of London's transport the roundel has been applied to other transport types within the city (bus, taxi, tram, DLR etc) in different colour pairs. The roundel has become a symbol for London itself.


London Underground Tube map (W3)

Die "London Underground Tube map" in ihrer heutigen Form wurde 1933 von Henry C. Beck, einem Angestellten von "London Transport" vorgeschlagen und entwickelt. Sein U-Bahnplan ähnelte einm Elektrischen Schaltplan.

Bis dahin bildeten die U-Bahnpläne den geographischen Verlauf der Strecken nach. Beck reduzierte die Darstellung auf waagrechte, senkrechte und im 45 Grad Winkel diagonale Linien.

Damit übertrug er die von George Dow seit 1908 praktizierte Darstellung, einer einzelnen Verbindung als gerade Strecke, auf den kompletten U-Bahnverbund.

Diese Darstellung hat allerdings auch Nachteile. Der U-Bahnplan läßt keine Rückschlüsse mehr auf die tatsächlichen Entfernungen zu. So findet man bei wikipedia ein Beispiel bei dem der Ortsunerfahrene 5 Stationen mit Umsteigen fährt um ein 100 Meter entferntes Ziel zu erreichen. Es gibt sogar ein Beispiel in dem der Plan die reale Orientierung (nach Himmelsrichtungen) genau falsch herum darstellt.

Life and Times of the London Underground Map

The Tube Map as Art
The London Underground Font
Frank Pick was Chief Executive of London Transport between 1913 and 1938. He had a great interest in visual arts and commissioned both the "London Underground font" and the famous "London Underground logo".
... the font is still in wide use by designers and the London Underground logo is almost a symbol of London itself.
Pick asked the calligrapher, Edward Johnston, to design the font in 1915. In 1916 after collaboration with Eric Gill (he of "Gill Sans font" fame), the "Johnston Sans Serif font" was produced. A few minor modifications later and we have the "Johnston Underground Font" which is still used on all London Underground maps, stations, posters and materials today. The New Johnston Underground font can be downloaded, too.

Rotten Row (W3)

Die "Rotten Row" im Londoner Hyde-Park könnte man durchaus mit "scheußliche Schlägerei" übersetzen. Schließlich war der Hyde-Park nach der Öffnung für die Öffentlichkeit im Jahr 1635 lange Zeit berüchtigt für Raubüberfälle und Duelle. Deshalb ließ König William III. von Oranien (1650-1702) an der "Rotten Row" auch Laternen aufstellen. Dennoch hat die Bezeichnung "Rotten Row" eine noblere Herkunft. Es ist eine Verballhornung von frz. "Route du Roi" = dt. "Königsweg".

E. Cobham Brewer 1810–1897. Dictionary of Phrase and Fable. 1898.

Rotten Row.

Muster row. Camden derives the word from rotteran (to muster); hence rot, a file of six soldiers. Another derivation is the Norman Ratten Row (roundabout way), being the way corpses were carried to avoid the public thoroughfares. Others suggest Route du roi; and others the Anglo-Saxon rot, pleasant, cheerful; or rotten, referring to the soft material with which the road is covered.

Speakers' Corner (W3)

Im Jahr 1872 verabschiedete das britische Parlament den "Royal Parks and Gardens Regulation Act". Diesem verdankt auch der "Speakers' Corner", die "Redner Ecke" an der Nordostecke des Londoner Hyde-Parks sein Dasein. Hier hat jedermann das Recht, seine Meinung frei zu äußern.

In der "Speakers' Corner" konnte man u.a. treffen: Friedrich Engels, der am 01. Mai 1890 eine Ansprache hielt,in der er zur internationalen Solidarität der Arbeiterbewegung aufrief. In den 1980er Jahren konnte man hier auf hunderttausende Friedensdemonstranten treffen. Auch viele Kundgebungen gegen Rassismus starteten hier.

Greater London and the London Boroughs

(E?)(L?) http://www.statistics.gov.uk/geography/london_boroughs.asp

Greater London was established in 1965 as an administrative unit covering the London metropolis. It was not defined as a county but had a two-tier structure, with the lower tier being the London boroughs. Following the abolition of the Greater London Council (GLC) in 1986 the boroughs became single-tier authorities, but Greater London was still widely recognised, especially for statistical and mapping purposes. In 2000 however a two-tier structure was re-established when the new Greater London Authority adopted responsibility for a range of citywide policy areas.

There are 32 actual boroughs, with a status similar to metropolitan districts, and also the City of London, which is a City Corporation and has a number of additional roles. Boroughs are subdivided into electoral wards.

Click on the extract above to view the full map of London boroughs.

London borough names and codes are listed below. The 4 character ONS code consists of the digits 00 followed by the 2 letters of the borough code, which is also listed separately after the borough name.

swan upper (W2)

In London gibt es Schwäne. Voe einigen Jahrhunderten dienten sie dem königlichen Hof zur Bereicherung der Speisekarte. Allerdings hat die britische Königin immer noch die Oberaufsicht über die Schwäne - zusammen mit zwei Gilden, den Weinhändlern (engl. "vintner") und den Färbern (engl. "Dyers"), denen im Mittelalter einige der Schwäne und deren Nachwuchs zugestanden wurden.
Seit über 900 Jahren findet jährlich eine Zählung statt, um den jeweiligen Anteil der Schwäne den drei beteiligten Eignern zuzuordnen. Mittlerweile dient dieser Census auch dem Naturschutz.

Für diese Aufgabe gibt es jedenfalls 6 livrierte Teams, die sogenannten "Swan uppers". - Wenn sie bei einem Schwanenpaar Nachkommen entdecken verkünden sie dies mit dem Ruf "All up!".

Tower Hamlets (W3)

Dem Namen nach geht der londoner Stadtteil "Tower Hamlets" wohl auf eine Ansammlung von Häusergruppen zurück (engl. "hamlet" = dt. "Weiler", wörtlich dt. "Heimleinchen"). Im 11. Jh. kam der markante "Tower of London" dazu. und so entstanden die londoner "Turmdörfchen".

The Dictionary of Victorian London is a vast website - it would run to thousands of pages in print - containing primary sources covering the social history of Victorian London. This includes extracts from Victorian newspapers, diaries, journalism, memoirs, maps, advertisements &c. and the full text of several dozen books. These sources are arranged by subject area and can be browsed and searched at will.

Chepe, Dogs and Rotten Row
London Names Explored

Auflage: Jahr: 2004

Verlag: Watling St Ltd
Produkt-Art: Hardcover 20,09 €

From "Cock Lane", "Pissing Alley", "Houndsditch" and "Old Jewry" to "Shaftesbury Ave" and "Marcus Garvey Way", London's place names serve as documents to its citizens ever-shifting lives and preoccupations. The novelist Maureen Duffy once described London's street signs as an alternative national portrait gallery; and the vicissitudes of England's history can be glimpsed in so many of the capital's names. Chepe, Dogs and Rotten Row: How London Was Named is a book that liberates London etymology from dictionary corner, offering instead a lively, idiosyncratic tour of the whole messy ephemera of the capital's nomenclature. Elborough, by scrutinising names etched into our collective consciousness, provides an insightful and entertaining account of the city's wayward development.
