One of the most famous directors in the world is honored with a special mosaic in a tube station (subway) in London. This is fast becoming a off the beaten track tourist attraction and is situated just outside of his birthplace and childhood home. That figure is none other than the master of suspense himself, Alfred Hitchcock. The Leytonstone tube station was redesigned to commemorated Hitchcock’s 100th birthday in 1999. The walls are filled mosaic dedicated to his life by representing some of the most famous films.
Designed by a team of 5 artists, memorable scenes from films such as “Rear Window” and “North by Northwest” are crafted in mosaic, managing to effectively pay homage to the man and showing that he has managed to conquer almost every art form in film. The mosaic is rounded out with Hitchcock’s famous profile that was featured on his smash hit television show “Alfred Hitchcock Presents.”
There are 17 mosaics in total and they are all beautiful and interesting in their own way. These mosaics are not well known, but they are a must see for any film devote or Hitchcock fan. The area is a perfect way to discover a hidden gem of the city of London without the crowds.
