Tube Station Anthology 1924 - 1961 by Philip Butler & Joshua Abbott
Charles Holden's designs for the London Underground from the mid-1920s to the outbreak of World War II represent a high point of transport architecture and Modernist design in Britain. His collaboration with Frank Pick, the Chief Executive of London Transport, brought about a marriage of form and function, civic service and commerce, which is still celebrated today.
This book catalogues and showcases the surviving stations from this innovative period and later examples influenced by it. Contemporary photographs by Philip Butler, annotated with a station-by-station overview by Joshua Abbott, will guide you through the network's Modernist gems.
