Historical Underground Map
Ninth Edition Published June 2016  
The London Underground:
A Diagrammatic History was designed and produced by myself and first published back in 1980. Now in its Ninth Edition it is gratifying that it is now established as a reliable source for all serious historians. Based on exhaustive research, the ‘map’ includes dates of opening and closing for all lines and stations, as well as all station name changes since the first line opened in 1863.
With a design reminiscent of the familiar London Underground diagram, the mass of information is presented in what I hope is an easy-to-read style, and can be absorbing to everyone with even a general interest. You can find out about long defunct services to Windsor, Southend, Brill and Verney Junction, and also many disused central London stations such as those at Aldwych, British Museum, Brompton Road, Down Street and many others.  
The ‘map’ is poster-sized, measuring 1000mm x 700m when opened out, and comes folded in a protective cover.

You can buy a copy from me direct if you like by sending £9.95 post free within the UK. Overseas purchasers must pay in Sterling and should e-mail me first for postage & packing costs.
Sorry, but I cannot accept payments electronically at the moment. Trade enquiries are welcome too. You can write to me at: 35 Summers Lane, North Finchley, London N12 0PE.
In order for readers to get a better idea what the historical map looks like, I suggest having a look at the two sectional enlargements from the Central London Sample and Halfway to Birmingham buttons.
Two other different ways to enjoy the map can be viewed from the Underground History Video Animated Maps section.
