Day Twenty - Victoria Station, SW1

That's London Brighton and South Coast Railway, one of the regional precursors of the Southern Railway, which was amalgamated into British Rail, which begat Southern (amongst others). This map - and another, which shows the links all the way down to the coast - are hidden in alcoves in one of the main entrances to Victoria Station and date back to before 1923, when the LB&SCR was swallowed up. You don't often see old maps like this preserved at stations (can't think of another offhand), so I'm always pleased to see it. 99.9% of people who go past it, of course, never even notice it.
