London Underground Metropolitan Line Luggage Rack

Sze Kiu and I went to the London Transport Museum Acton Depot open day last week, and we could not resist the temptation of buying a reclaimed luggage rack from the now de-commissioned London Underground Metropolitan Line "A Stock" trains.

Not only is the rack a piece of iconic London history, it also proves to be an extremely practical and stylish item for our living room. Voila:





They are available from the London Transport Museum online shop (at a considerably higher cost than what we had to pay for at the open day, incidentally)
