I found it with an image search, but the page that supposedly contains it (at doesn’t seem to.

That’s great. But what I thought was really cool is how, in the blue banner crossing the red circle, where it usually says “Embankment,” it temporarily says “Platform Closed.” If you know what you’re looking for, you can kind of see it in my photo.

I didn’t think to search for someone else’s photos, but now that I have searched… I still can’t find one.

Ah, right, didn’t spot that before. (I was thinking of the old tiled name signs.) The closest I’ve found is the “Station Closed” posters at Aldwych.
