Synopsis: A stunning collection of previously unpublished photographs perfect for anyone interested in the history of London Underground, its style, and architecture With a supporting text detailing the rich architectural and design heritage of the London Underground, this unique photographic collection provides 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. Exploring the fascinating history and important nostalgia value of the network—both aspects which are rarely appreciated by the average strap-hanging rider—the 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.

About the Author: David Long is the author of The Little Book of London and Spectacular Vernacular. Jane Magarigal has been a freelance photographer specializing in black and white photography for more than 35 years.

Book Description Book 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Underground its abundance of characters, design firsts and brand identity with Magarigal's atmospheric and previously unpublished photographs from the 1970s.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.
