Cover image: The escalator in Southgate Underground station. The uplights were designed by Charles Holden. Holden not only designed many underground stations but also took great care of the details, such as the light fittings within them. Photo by Steve Cadman on Flickr CC:BY.
Image on this page: The administrative centre of the University of London, Senate House, in Bloomsbury was designed by Charles Holden in the early 1930s. At the time it was the second tallest building in London after St Paul’s Cathedral. Photo: David Burnell. See pages 10-13.
