Underground Maps

Last updated 9th August 2011

The basis for my pages about the Underground map comes from Peter B. Lloyd’s Underground Railway Maps: www.ursasoft.com/maps/ (unfortunately no longer available).

Other useful and interesting sites about London Underground maps are

Max Roberts’ Tube Map Central privatewww.essex.ac.uk/~mjr/underground/tubemap.html
Clive Billson’s A History of the London Tube Maps homepage.ntlworld.com/clivebillson/tube/tube.html
James Bow’s The London Tube Map Archive www.clarksbury.com/cdl/maps.html
Leonard Soicher’s Historical London Underground Maps uk.geocities.com/lhsoicher/undergroundmaps.html

The images come from various sources including my own collection, and, of course, ebay.
