The Piccadilly Line is typical of London's deep level tubes. Originally built as a strictly urban enterprise it has extended at each end into Middlesex and helped generate London's modern suburbs. Mike Horne presents an illustrated history of the whole process, from planning and construction to the opening in December 1906, and through the building of stations that are now listed buildings, wartime service as air raid shelters and post-war reconstruction to the Terminal 5 extension at Heathrow.
