Mind The Gap

angelDoes anyone remember the “Mind the gap” recording that played on the London tube for about 40 years? Well, it’s back. OK, it’s back on one station. The widow of Oswald Laurence, whose voice was used for the recordings, was horrified to discover that her late hubby’s voice was no longer being played at the Embankment station where she often went there to hear it. So she begged the Transport for London bosses to reinstate it so she can hear his voice  and they agreed.
