I love this photo of Ann Dodds, the first female driver of The London Underground, about to drive a tube train. It was taken 6th October 1978; I came across it on The Guardian’s photo gallery ‘150 years of the London underground – in pictures‘. As this year celebrates 150 years, this means that women have only been working on The London Underground for roughly a fifth of its existence. Go Ann!
