044/270: #ClaphamCommon – The Takeover

In 2016, Clapham Common was the sight of possibly the greatest ever poster-ad campaign London has ever seen. CATS (Citizens Advertising Takeover Service) was a crowd funding project with the sole purpose of buying out advertising space and replacing it with pictures of cats. If you’ve forgotten how awesome this was, then you can relive Calling All Station’s visit here.

Why did they pick Clapham Common? Partly because it’s quite a trendy area and plastering the walls with cats would no doubt gather social media attention; but mostly because this is a fairly compact station and any cat-based-poster funds would stretch a lot further.

So compact in fact that both north and southbound platforms are housed in one tunnel.
