Pocket Underground map - map

This pocket Underground map shows the Railway lines belonging to the Underground Group in 1908. It includes the Hampstead Tube from Golders Green and Highgate to Charing Cross, The Bakerloo Tube extension to Paddington and the Great Northern Piccadilly & Brompton Railway branch to Strand, all of which opened in 1907. It also shows the Metropolitan Railway, which became part of London Transport in 1933. The sun burst motif, used on the front cover, was designed in 1907 by W J Pawsey. It is the earliest logo used by the Underground Group and marks the beginnings of co-ordinated marketing between all the Underground railways. The distinctive 'UNDERGROUND' lettering was introduced in 1908. The reverse lists interchange stations and provides information for travel to theatres, cemeteries, hospitals, hotels, restaurants and other places of interest.
