Hi All,

The Foreign Office has redesigned the british passport, and it now features three SE1 related images:

The first is of the central section of the London Underground, showing the Elephant & Castle, Waterloo, Borough, and London Bridge stations:



The second shows the Globe Theatre on the South Bank:



The third depicts the London Eye:



I know there is controversy over the few women depicted, but it feels good to see our neighbourhood so well represented.

They took a very liberal view on the tube map as there are other omissions: the Victoria Line appears to end in the middle of nowhere, since Brixton station has been omitted, and only the District and Central lines seem to be worthy of showing their colour.
