Maps of London’s Transport: Design variety in the first half of the Twentieth Century, John Dodd, Capital History, 2016, HB, £35, 156pp 9781854144003
This large format hardback book covers the developments of all modes of public transport offered in London between 1900 through to 1950. It boasts that it is the first book to cover this topic and time period in this way, and therefore will be a welcome volume on the shelf for those interested in the evolution of the capital’s transport infrastructure as well as those with a more general interest in the more recent growth and development of London.
