This book covers in pictures, the history and development of London's main terminal stations, looking at the stations through the lens of photographers from Victorian and Edwardian times through to the modern era.

The main terminal stations in London have changed greatly in the last 150 years, this volume seeks through pictures to capture the spirit of those changes, showing the often interesting and colourful history of these great and often beautiful structures, that are an important part of our railway heritage.

Plenty of photographs of the station buildings and their supporting infrastructure.

"Altogether an interesting and up to date browse."

"The majority of the photographs are the author’s own, reproduced to the high quality that we have come to expect from Pen & Sword, and include some quite stunning views taken from the top of the Shard, together with architectural details and also paying much attention to station facades."

About Geoff Swaine

Geoff Swaine was a war baby growing up firstly in Somerset and then London. Being in the centre of London as a boy in the fifties he had access to all those big London Stations. Kings Cross being his favourite often waiting until 10pm to see the night mail out from Platform 10.

A job as a signalman’s assistant after leaving school lasted a short while before he took up a career as an architectural draughtsman.

It was a redundancy in the nineties which led him to get interested in photography and photographing steam engines. A book was published in 200 which turned out to being the first of several. The latest being ‘Pageant of British Steam’.
