quote 22:22:01 I find it unsurprising that the paper concludes that the tube map plays a large role in structuring people’s image of both under and over-ground London. More interesting to me was the particular use of the map to structure areas of London which were personally unknown to the individual. This seems to suggest that the tube map is used to structure the ‘mythical space’ described by Yi-Fu Tuan in Space and Place as spaces existing outside of personal experience. Does this make zone 6 a mythical space to most Londoners?
