Goodbye, Thames

I'll miss the Thames. Its pale blue meanderings gave sense to the bright tangle of Tube lines on the Underground map, kept it real and oriented. Now, without it, it's a scattering of dots and lines, ungrounded. It also looks revived, shaped by an older design sensibility. (Which makes sense, since it was not an original feature of the design.)

It's also disingenuous to take the zones off of the map. Perhaps TFL is hoping to up the odds of tourists buying the wrong kind of ticket and thus be charged penalty fares?. (Map change article.)
