Book Description Condition: New. Long expertly weaves the history of the London Underground ? its abundance of characters, design firsts and brand identity ? with Magarigal's atmospheric and previously unpublished photographs from the 1970s. The volume is a striking record of the subterranean city before financial pressures, a lack of planning and investment, and new safety legislation began to take their toll. From suburban expansion to Blitz bombings and Soviet adulation, it celebrates what remains a magnificent engineering and aesthetic achievement while providing an affectionate if slightly elegiac portrait of a London now gone for good.
