Are they two photos side by side?

I'll also add that they were taken at two stations.

That is just preposterous. Not only is there one station with such a crazy floor pattern, there are two! I bet it was built just before the war, but as we aren't allowed 20 questions in which to answer the question, I may never know.

Correct entries so far: That would be telling, wouldn't it? :P

The pictures were, of course, from Westminster and Waterloo Jubilee line platforms.
They show the end of the strips of tiles that indicate where the platform edge doors are.

Interestingly, they're coloured slightly differently, and are the only places I've seen them on the JLE.

The clueful:
rhubarbrhubarb - Even identifying them in the correct order (although maybe by chance)

The clueless:
Starkey7 - Ruislip Manor and Ruislip
uefacup81 - Berlin Hauptbahnhof and S Karl-Bonhoeffer Nervenklinik (Berlin)
tubeguru - Green Park and Tottenham Court Road
garion - Bank/Monument

As this ended 6 years ago, I don't think it is a hugely important consideration...
