Tube Station Anthology 1900-1933 documents the surviving station buildings from the closing decades of the nineteenth century when London revelled in a new transport phenomenon, the world's first underground railway.
The book covers the now iconic work of Leslie Green and his contemporaries through to the designs of Charles W. Clarke for the Metropolitan Railway during the inter-war years. By the turn of the century a construction boom was underway as competing companies operating below the capital's streets sought to expand as rapidly as possible.
Tube Station Anthology features a contemporary photo series by Ryan Trower accompanied by a detailed overview of the different lines and their respective architects by Joshua Abbott, covering 65 station buildings. A chapter covering the demolished examples, illustrated with period photos from the London Transport Museum, is also included.
