Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The London Underground is the heart of London life, used by millions of commuters and shoppers every year, its tentacles extending into the suburbs it has helped to create. Its turbulent life has been determined by the trials and tribulations endured by the people it carries: it provided an network of life-saving shelter in the Blitz, but has also been the scene of numerous tragedies. The London Underground will transport you vividly back to the past: well over half the illustrations are in color, and most of the photographs have not seen the light of day since they were taken.

About the Author

When he is not writing and broadcasting on the subject of today's high-tech wizardry, Andrew Emmerson enjoys discovering the history of the inventions which came before this, also restoring and reviving equipment based on these older technologies.
