(Bakerloo & Northern Lines)
The Baker Street & Waterloo Railway (later Bakerloo Line) arrived in 1906. The station had a separate surface station building designed by Leslie Green (though there is interchange between the two sets of platforms below ground). Originally the Bakerloo had wanted a subsurface ticket office but this was blocked by the local council . The station is the Bakerloo's Southern terminus, the line running on a short distance after the platforms for stabling. Southern extensions have been planned for the Bakerloo since the 1930s  and the current proposals are to extend the line to Lewisham.
The station was used as an air raid shelter in the First World War . The first baby to be born on the underground was at Elephant & Castle in 1924. A major upgrade and rebuild of the station is being planned with a new ticket hall for the Northern and improved escalators and lifts.
