Tiles of the Unexpected Underground - Second Edition


By Doug Rose

At the start of the Twentieth Century, London Underground passengers had become used to seeing platforms finished in plain white tiling, with posters providing the only colour. Then the Yerkes Tubes opened with platforms decorated with coloured tiles in patterns unique to each station. This major and detailed study of these patterns, and the work involved in uncovering them in some cases, was originally published by the author in 2007, along with a separate folder of posters. Now the book on its own will be available in an updated edition from Capital Transport. The print run is limited.
