Description: Childbirth is an amazing and beautiful thing - the normal place to give birth to a child is in a hospital or at least within spitting distance of medical assistance.
And so to the Tube and 1924, Elephant & Castle tube to be exact - and the only person ever to be born in a tube carriage.
