Mind the Gap - A London Underground Miscellany
on 16 July 2013
The first reviewer gave five stars and a laudable review, but is not the reviewer a relative of the authoress? So after six months from publication this is just the second review.
The concept for this publication is very good, however many simple errors were evident on first reading which surely should have been picked up by the proof reader.
Page 48 States the Metropolitan District Railway opened on 10th January 1863 - simply not true
Page 21 The Inner Circle line was the first deep-level Underground line - simply not true.
Page 37 The Underground spread out as far as Hampshire - simply not true.
Page 39 Does not the Hammersmith & City line also serve Baker Street?
Page 42 Edgware is on the District line - simply not true.
Page 53 Waterloo & City line transport commuters from one side of the City to the other - simply not true.
