The Lonely Archer



The Lonely Archer

Pre-war sculpture of The Lonely Archer, the only 3d tube statue.

Location: East Finchley Undergound Station, London

Description: Eric Aumoniers archer at East Finchley station, sometimes affectionately called Archie, is the only three dimensional statue in the Underground.
