East London Line/Yiddish Sarf London: קריסטל פעלעס
Overground Uncovered exhibition at the Transport Museum, about life on the East London Line? I saw a flier in a local shop, and among the images is one of some Hebrew letters (קריסטל פעלעס) which spell Crystal Palace (or, rather Kristl Peles) in Yiddish. (I would have gone for קריסטל פאליס (Kristl Palis) myself, but I'm not a native Yiddish speaker. Can anyone shed any light on this?
