Kensington Court is an 1880s apartment block which features in The Inventor. The development was the first domestic building in Britain to be supplied with electricity! The generator room - the Electric Lighting Station - still stands and is listed for its importance. It's now used for office space.

I've just been writing about London's underground railway as it was once called - now better known as the tube. The Metropolitan Line was the world's first underground railway and opened in 1863. These days 19th century steam trains do occasional runs on the tube network, here's a photo from 2013 (celebrating 150 years).

It makes you realise how smoky, dirty and noisy the underground railway must have been before the trains were electric - the first of those arrived in 1890 on what is now part of the Northern Line 🚂
