Inhaltsangabe: This title presents the entire history of public transport in London from its beginnings in the early 19th century. Comprehensively illustrated, it covers all the main phases of the public transport system: early water transport, horse buses and trams, the steam underground, modern electric underground and buses. The book is organized chronologically, each chapter containing an illustrated opening essay, numerous images with extensive captions and feature boxes that focus on specific themes. In addition to those of stations and vehicles, there are contemporary photographs and engravings of the construction and operation of the transport network, its innovative posters and graphic design, the personalities and the architecture. The book shows how intimately the history of transport is intertwined with the history of London.
This chunky little book is a timely remainder of just how many amazing designers have worked for London Transport and London Underground over the years. It's full of gorgeous Thirties stations, posters and station murals by Games, Man Ray and Tom Eckersley, and numerous images of a London that simply no longer exists. -- Grafik
