The London Course: Exploring Growing Village Suburbs

The growth of London in recent centuries entailed the swallowing up of small villages deep in the countryside.

This course will examine what have now become extensive London boroughs. Each which will be described in lectures followed by walks through these historic areas and each should be treated as an integrated pair of topics.

Lecture about The London Underground

So much of suburbia has been developed because of and alongside the Underground. This lecture will follow its development from the steam-hauled days of the 19th century to its golden years of the 1930s. The evolving architecture of its stations will be a major theme, culminating in the exciting avant-garde structures of Charles Holden, whose Art Deco 55 Broadway remains a major building. Along with this, we will see the work of numerous artists promoting the lure of suburbia through posters and the rapid connection with working London and its widespread amenities.
