The London That Never Happened (Capital)

Back Order

In The London That Never Happened its author, Antony Badsey-Ellis, has gathered together facts and illustrations regarding a fascinating array of projects, which range from some that would have had little chance of going ahead, to ones that came very close to execution.

Among the bold, but unrealised proposals for London covered in this book are - suspended monorails in central London and to Heathrow, a cross-river tram, the Kearney and Morgan tubes, a Charing Cross heliport, the Marylebone busway, a pyramid on Trafalgar Square, an airport at King’s Cross, an Eiffel Tower at Wembley, the City of London pedways, a sixties-style Piccadilly Circus, a diverted Thames, a remodelled Westminster, a very different South Bank and three six-lane orbital motorways.

78 colour and black & white maps and images. Hardback. 96 Pages.
