Paperback edition of an extraordinary collection of black and white photographs of London's Underground. With a supporting text detailing the rich architectural and design heritage of the London Underground, this unique photographic collection provides a striking record of the subterranean city before financial pressures, a lack of planning and investment and new safety legislation began to take their toll. Exploring the fascinating history and important nostalgia value of the network - both aspects which are rarely appreciated by the average strap-hanging commuter - the book celebrates what remains a magnificent engineering and aesthetic achievement while providing an affectionate if slightly elegiac portrait of a London which is now gone for good. AUTHOR: Writer and journalist David Long has regularly appeared in The Times and the London Evening Standard, as well as on TV and radio. As well as being an award-winning ghostwriter, he has written a number of books on London, including Spectacular Vernacular, Tunnels, Towers and Temples, and Little Book of London. SELLING POINTS: Perfect for anyone interested in the history of the London Underground, its style and architecture Natural follow-on from David Long's earlier book, The Little Book of the London Underground With a stunning collection of previously unpublished images by photographer Jane Magarigal 120 b/w images
