I've spent this morning reading up on the history of the Piccadilly Line northern extension in "The Piccadilly Tube: A history of the first 100 years" by Mike Horne. There are some fascinating images included and I've scanned a few to share with you. You can watch the slideshow below or to read the captions that go with the pics have a look at this album.

I spent so many years travelling on this line! Turnpike was home station. I had friends over the line in St Annes area and the tea cups shook every few minutes. It was always electric of course unlike many others.
