Tube Station Anthology 1900-1933 by Ryan Trower & Joshua Abbott
In the closing decades of the nineteenth century, London was revelling in a new transport phenomenon, the world's first underground railway. By the turn of the century, a construction boom was underway as competing companies operating below the capital's streets sought to expand as rapidly as possible.
Tube Station Anthology (1900-1933) documents the surviving station buildings from this period, covering the now iconic work of Leslie Green and his contemporaries through to the designs of Charles W. Clarke for the Metropolitan Railway during the inter-war years.
Featuring a contemporary photo series by Ryan Trower accompanied by a detailed overview of the different lines and their respective architects by Joshua Abbott, it covers 65 station buildings and is presented as an accompaniment to the 'blue' Tube Station Anthology (1924-1961) book.
A chapter covering the demolished examples, illustrated with period photos from the London Transport Museum, is also included.
