Messages to Kevin

Over the past week I’ve been getting a chuckle during my train ride to and from work. I must not be the only person travelling between London Bridge and Charing Cross who has been looking forward to what new message will be broadcast to Kevin.

What am I on about? There’s a building on the south* side of the rail viaduct just past London Bridge that everyday has an A4 print out taped to one of the windows. So far I’ve seen ‘Good Morning, Kevin’, ‘Smile Kevin’, ‘Smile Kevin’ again but with a 13 beneath it and today’s was ‘We’re digging’ with a 12 beneath it. I’ve been wanting to get a photo but it’s a bit tricky to A) always be on the the right side of the train and B) get something that isn’t a blur on an iPhone camera. What Arial type faced missive will there be when I’m back that way on Friday?

*correction – I originally posted north, it’s actually south.
