The Moving Metropolis

A History of London's Transport Since 1800

David Lawrence

From horse-drawn trams and the opening of the first passenger railway in 1836, to the UK's first urban cable car, this engrossing volume traces the history of the transport systems that have made a vital contribution to the development of London. With informative texts and hundreds of captioned artworks and photographs, the book covers topics such as transport during wartime, the challenge of the motor car and architectural design as well as the trams, trains and buses that have kept London moving since 1800.
