This review is from: What's in a Name?: Origins of Station Names on the London Underground (Paperback)Cyril M. Harris has seriously researched the history of most London tube stations and has included a lot of photos from the 1910s and onwards, which makes it a lot more interesting. There is no historical information on London tube ghost stations but the list present in this book makes it one of a kind.
One day I took the book with me on the tube and I read the paragraphs devoted to each of the stations my train crossed one by one. It was like living history all over again. Try it! It might break the routine.
I would highly recommend Harris's book to anyone interested in the history of the London Underground network and for those interested in a bit of London sightseeing in the 1910s-1950s.
