Excelent compact introduction,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Tube (Shire General) (Hardcover)
Shire publications have a habit of cramming a lot into a small book, and this is no exception. The first section of the book covers the history of the London Underground network in under 60 pages, touching on the key points in the timeline and introducing those people important to the particular focus of this book which is architecture and design.
The remainder of the book sets out several journeys that will take the reader to a good selection of well-chosen stations that each showcase the finer qualities of the style of their period.
It is also well illustrated with the photos mostly kept sensibly small to allow as much room as possible for the text in this compact volume.
