Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0752458124, Hardcover)

A stunning collection of previously unpublished photographs perfect for anyone interested in the history of London Underground, its style, and architecture
 
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 rider—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.
