London Puzzles: Faulty Mapping

London Puzzles: Faulty Mapping

Remember in French text books at school, when the hapless Jean-Claude would eagerly open a new letter from his pen-pal, only to spill coffee all over the verbs? Like, every week. And always over the verbs. 'Zut Alors!', as we believe all French people say in such situations.

Well, we've had a similar calamity. We accidentally opened Google Maps, mistakenly ported screenshots into Photoshop and clumsily wiped colour brushes all over the Tube station names. Can you use your skill and/or judgment to help us work out which Tube station is shown in each case?
