Tokens of Yesterday on Today's Tube
Begun in the 1860s, the London Underground has a rich legacy of historic architecture and fixtures. Some are listed, others have been given heritage status by Transport for London. Illustrated in colour throughout, this absorbing book charts the design history of the Tube, and celebrates the gems that many commuters pass by without noticing. Here are Leslie Green’s turn-of-the-century oxblood-tiled stations, Charles Holden’s Art Deco masterpieces, and a plethora of clocks, tiles, lighting, ornamental metalwork and signs.
