Thelma Ursula Beatrice Eleanor - born on the tube

Childbirth is an amazing and beautiful thing - the normal place to give birth to a child is in a hospital or at least within spitting distance of medical assistance.

And so to the Tube and 1924, Elephant & Castle tube to be exact - and the only person ever to be born in a tube carriage.

Her name was Thelma Ursula Beatrice Eleanor - check out her initials. She was born on a Bakerloo line train at Elephant & Castle.

Location: Elephant & Castle Station, SE1
