Let me be clear with you, this is no photoshopped miracle. I took this from inside a Jubilee line train on Sunday, March 8.
There are a number of reasons why this picture is hard to believe.
Firstly, this sign is on the rail-side (as opposed to platform-side) of Canary Wharf station. Therefore someone must have risked life and limb between on-coming trains in order to get the shoe on there.
Secondly, the platform at Canary Wharf station is cordoned off from the tracks by sliding doors which only open when a train stops. So someone must have prised the doors open, and then risked life and limb between on-coming trains in order to get the shoe on there.
Either a daredevil stunt artist is having a laugh, or this is the final macabre act of defiance by a member of the banking community made redundant as a result of the economic meltdown. Giving Canary Wharf “the boot” so to speak…
