Description - Underground to Everywhere by Stephen Halliday

London's Underground is one of the best-known and distinctive aspects of the city. Since Victorian Times, this remarkable feat of engineering has made an extraordinary contribrution to the economy of the capital and played a vital role in the daily life of generations of Londonders. Stephen Halliday's informative, entertaining, wide-ranging history of the Underground celebrates the vision and determination of the Victorian Pioneers who conceived this revolutionary transport system. His book records the scandal, disappointments, and disasters that have punctuated the story and the careers of the gifted, dedicated, sometimes corrupt individuals that have shaped it's history. It also gives a fascinating insight into the neglected, often unseen aspects of this subterranean system - the dense network of tunnels, shafts and chambers that have been created beneath the city streets. STEPHEN HALLIDAY is an authority on the history of London, with a special interest in the great engineering and construction works which created the modern city. He is the author of The Great Stink of London: Sir Joseph Bazalgette and the Cleansing of the Victorian Metropolis.
