The seminal and pioneering London Underground is more than a mass transportation network – it is a style icon, its history involving some of the most important architects and artists of their time. Exploring Frank Pick’s vision through the development of Metroland to Holden’s innovative designs, David Long expertly weaves the story of the Underground – its abundance of characters (some good, some not so good), design firsts and brand identity – with Jane Magarigal’s atmospheric photography. From suburban expansion to Blitz bombings and Soviet adulation, this book celebrates what remains a magnificent engineering and aesthetic achievement while providing an affectionate if slightly elegiac portrait of a London which is now gone for good.
