Railways Around London (Transport Treasury)

1 In Stock

A collection of black & white images from the Alan A Jackson archive, Illustrating London’s railways in the period between 1953 and 1973. The images show the changing nature of London’s railways, including many locations which have since changed almost beyond recognition.

Railway historian, John Glover, has added extensive caption detail to every image, providing detailed historical information about every subject and the significance of the location in London’s railway development. Includes a good cross-section of images from across the Capital.

The illustrations are arranged geographically, beginning with railways on the north bank of the Thames and working from the London terminals outwards. Coverage moves anti-clockwise round to the railways on the south bank and London Underground is pictured on a line-by-line basis.

Railways Around London explains the history of many of the featured routes both surface and sub-surface and their place in history or within the modern day transport infrastructure of London. 112 pages.
