In What’s in a Name? Cyril Harris has researched extensively the origins of the station names on the London Underground and Docklands Light Railway, and in the process providing a fascinating insight into the social history of our capital. Dealing with questions such as what style of dress gave its name to a well-known London landmark, which gardens were given to the nation by Queen Victoria and where fires used to be lit to guide travellers across London, this book is a must for anyone with an interest in the capital’s history and also as a handy reference guide to those who have always been curious about London place-name origins.
The book contains the name-origins and history of all the Underground stations, the dates that they were opened and any former names that they may have had. The result is a handy pocket-sized ‘mini’ history of London and parts of the surrounding counties that will answer any questions you may have over the naming on stations on the Underground. Black and white historical photographs accompany certain stations, giving a flavour of how underground stations have evolved over the years.
