Kensal Rise to Crouch Hill - via Barking

As it was a beautiful midsummer morning, after changing trains (6:57), I stayed on to the end of the line (always wanted to do that!), photographing (through a dirty window, often into the sunlight) at each station. As the route was new to me, and there were announcements, I wrote down the names of the stations:
Gospel Oak
Upper Holloway
Crouch Hill
Harringay Green Lanes
South Tottenham
Blackhorse Road
Walthamstow Queen's Road
Leyton Midland Road
Leytonstone High Road
Wanstead Park
Woodgrange Park
-- and back.
While transcribing the names, I fell into my own trap - starting reading each page from the top. It's not written starting from the top of each page - for the line to be continuous, it goes from side to side down the right-hand page, then at the outer edge it continues onto the bottom of the left-hand page, and then it travels up the left-hand page to continue onto the top of the right-hand page. (Easy when you know how... and obvious when you know where to look.)
