This review is from: The Subterranean Railway: How the London Underground Was Built and How it Changed the City Forever (Paperback)
This is an excellent book. Mr Wolmar has the knack of presenting this important history in such a manner that the people and events seem to be real and current. There is nothing missed, from the efforts of the early pioneers to the (apparent) falling of scales from the eyes of 21st Century administrators. And it's all readable! The system began in 1864 and is still in full use today, so if you are inquisitive enough to want to how and why, buy this book and read all about it.
