These are Piccadilly Circus and Hyde Park Corner tube stations, from February 1958. In so many ways, these look pretty much as they do today. The second one is remarkable in that there’s no-one else there – when did you last see an empty tube station?
The advert in the first one caught my eye – “We Want Watney’s Brown Ale”. From what I understand, it was a reasonable brew in those days, long before the dreaded Watney’s Red Barrel and Party Seven.

    You can probably guess I'll be interested in seeing any rail related photos John took. So I hope there will be more in the future. You can sense the atmosphere in both photos.
