It's hard to think of any institution that more readily represents London than the Underground system. Practical, egalitarian, efficient, popular, logical, organized and yet infuriating, maddening, and confusing--it stands for everything modern life does in this great world capital. Most Londoners simply take the Tube for granted, a huge resource that links us work, friends, entertainment and every facet of life in the City. The Underground is dependable, ever present--it's that gentle giant that rumbles in the distance, those familiar red circles on the street, and yet it wasn't always like that. London wasn't always like it is today.
In this special little book, meet the men who created this amazing resource, the pioneers who envisaged a joined up city and learn about the failures and successes, the secrets, the missing stations, the urban myths, and the way the Tube has become a vital part of London life. There are more fascinating facts than you can imagine. Think about London and you can't help but think about the Tube. Hop on but mind the gap.
