With a collection of extraordinary black and white photographs of London's Underground, it's the perfect title for those interested in both 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 commuter - 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."@en ;
