On the roundel signs on the sides of the footbridge on each of the District line platforms, the station name is in a pre-Johnston typeface. Note that the top of the two halves of the W cross over.

On 1 November 1869, Uxbridge Road opened. This was partially on the current site of the current Shepherd's Bush Overground station. It closed in 1940.
