A visually exciting history of the development of the train network in the historical London Underground from 1863 to 1999 and the development of the escalators which move vast numbers of passengers from the streets of London, England to the platforms underground. Over 70 phenomenal photos from the London Transport Museum, many digitally restored by Grey Gale Creations. Some extraordinary illustrations (previously unpublished) are of the original tunnels being built as well as the Underground being used as shelters in the World War II Bombing raids on London. NOT TO BE MISSED! A great gift item.
