Tottenham Court Road station Paolozzi mosaics

As symbols go, the Roundel is pretty iconic. A circular haze of red and blue up ahead is a welcome sign to weary tourists and Londoners alike that help is at hand in the form of a tube station.

But it's not the only iconic piece of Transport for London history. From stations and vehicles to maps, posters and more obscure items, members of the public are being invited to vote for their favourite before the poll closes on 1 October.

Did you love the Paolozzi mosaics at Tottenham Court Road Station? Does a roundel clock get you ticking? Whether you're a fan of the brutalist architecture of Westminster station or the more nostalgic history of Baker Street, your favourite London Transport design icon needs your vote. It's not just tube stations — bus stations are on the list, along with posters and much more.

Click through the gallery below to see some more of the contenders. All 100 are listed here.
