In 2013 London Underground, the world's first underground railway, marks its 150th anniversary. This new, lavishly illustrated history is the official anniversary publication of the London Underground, drawing on previously unseen sources and images to celebrate the crucial role of the tube in the creation and everyday life of modern London. London Underground experts David Bownes, Oliver Green and Sam Mullins have a lifelong passion for the city and the Tube. In London Underground 150 they blend social history with the story of the pioneering engineers, designers, and social reformers who created the system, reflecting on the problems of keeping a fast growing city on the move. From providing access to the business heart of the Victorian City of London to the leisure delights of the Edwardian West End, through the growth of the suburbs and the vital role of the Underground as shelter during the Blitz, the story continues through urban regeneration to the challenge of upgrading the original network to meet the needs of the 21st century. With a cast of characters encompassing entrepreneurs, architects, politicians and passengers, this is the story of how the world beneath our feet made history.
