Tower Subway 150 -- August 2, 2020

The Illustrated London News, 1870
150 years ago today, on 02-August-1870, London's Tower subway began operating in a tube under the Thames. The single car was pulled back and forth by a cable. The system was not reliable and the tube was converted to a pedestrian walkway by November, 1870.
