Portrait of Leslie Green, architect, (1875-1908) - photograph

Description:
Leslie Green, here wearing a high starched collar and tie with his dark three-piece suit, was appointed architect to the Underground Electric Railways Company of London (U.E.R.L.) when he was only 28. He designed many of the early Underground stations on the Bakerloo, Piccadilly and Northern lines. The above-ground station buildings had distinctive ox-blood red faience bricks. These buildings, and the tiling on the tunnels and walkways below ground, were in the Arts & Crafts classical style.
