This book catalogues and showcases the surviving stations from this innovative period and later examples influenced by it. Contemporary photographs by Philip Butler, annotated with a station-by-station overview by Joshua Abbott, will guide you through the network's Modernist gems.
London Tube Stations 1924–1961 presents each period of development, Line by Line, with contemporary photos of all the surviving stations. All the key stations have a double page spread, with a primary exterior photo with one or two supporting images. A broader introduction, illustrated with photos from the London Transport Museum, gives historical context, while a closing chapter lists the demolished examples with further period images.
‘London Tube Stations 1924-1961’ is a new monograph published by Fuel, on the work of Charles Holden and Frank Pick, who reshaped the graphic identity and spatial perception of the London Underground.
