In June 2012, the Sunday Times Magazine ran an eight-page cover
story feature entitled ‘Londres calling, why 400,000 French people are
colonising the capital’, complete with a Transport for London poster with
often witty French names given to London’s tube stations, from ‘Parc de la
Reine’ in the north-east and ‘Mornington Croissant’ in the north-west, to
the renamed ‘Gare de Napoléon’ replacing Waterloo. We are very grateful to the Sunday Times Magazine, Transport for London and Getty Images for permission both to reproduce it here, and to use it on the cover of A History of the French in London.
