The London Tube turns 121! | VRChristensen

The London Tube turns 121!

As I’ve recently begun to examine my first book, Cry of the Peacock (formerly Kentridge Hall) anew, I realised that I very nearly missed the anniversary of one of the Victorian Era’s greatest achievements. In celebration of the ‘Tube’ as it is now affectionately called, I thought I might post my research on the ‘City and South London Railway’, the opening celebration of which, is featured in the book. Read the excerpt here.

From the London Times, 5 November 1890

See the article for 4 November 1890 here. This article describes the train and how it was constructed, etc.
