Transformed by the Tube

Oliver Green, London Underground expert, author & London Transport Museum research fellow will be holding a one hour talk at the museum on 17th November 2009 as part of the museum's "Suburbia" season.

Southgate Tube by OliverN5

"Modernity in Morden, home comforts in Hendon and a spaceship in Southgate. How the Underground brought semi-detached civilisation to London’s new inter-war suburbs. In the 15 years between 1924 and 1939 London's suburbs grew at a rapid pace. Oliver will examine how the arrival of the Tube in open countryside just outside London led to the creation of completely new suburban communities, and how the Underground extensions introduced new architectural styles."

The talk takes place in the Museum's Cubic Theatre and starts at 18.30. Adults £8.00; senior citizens £6.00; students £4.00. More details ans for online & telephone booking details, check out the Museum's website.
