Architect Charles Holden was commissioned by London Underground in the early 1930s to design a number of stations for the Piccadilly line. Widely regarded as fine examples of British Modernism, his tour explores the Holden style, looking at how all aspects of a busy Tube station were dealt with by design.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.
