Descripció

An illustrated historical tour of London's 13 great railway termini, on a clockwise circuit from Paddington to Victoria.

This beautifully illustrated book is a short history and guide to London's principal mainline railway stations, from the first to be opened (London Bridge, 1836) to the last of the Victorian termini (Marylebone, 1899). It follows the roller coaster fortunes of the stations in the twentieth century, which included the demolition of Euston and its great arch in the 1960s, the skilful renovation and reconstruction of Liverpool Street in the late 1980s, and the survival and restoration of St Pancras and its famous neo-gothic hotel. It also covers the recent and upcoming developments of the twenty-first century, including rebuilding work (London Bridge, completed in 2018), renovation/restoration projects (St Pancras, 2007) new works commencing for the HS2 terminal at Euston, and a major new interchange at Old Oak Common in west London due to open in 2022.
