Leytonstone Hitchcock Mosaics
In Leytonstone underground station are a series of 17 mosaics, in the passageway linking Church Road and Gainsborough Road.

The mosiacs are Alfred Hitchcock themed - 14 depict scenes from his films, one shows him as a child outside his parents' grocery shop in the High Road, one shows him at work as a director, and another shows him relaxing.

Each mosaic has an information plaque next to it.

Some were hard to photograph - the light levels in the tunnel are quite low, requiring use of flash, and some mosaics are on curved walls - but each scene should be recognisable to a Hitchcock fan!

The full size image of each is rather large, you can zoom in to see every tiny tile and to read (some of) the plaques.
