Neat photos ... Montreal's (outer) stations are so dingy in comparison I prefer lighting to dimness

Too late to bid, but over the weekend the London Transport Museum held an auction over at Christie’s, offering the chance for people to buy London Underground posters direct from the archives of the museum, and featured over 300 original advertising posters dating from 1913 to 1955.

Some stations on the London Underground were dim, such as Euston Square, so I had to resort to long exposures to get something that's worth looking.
