London by Tube

London by Tube: A History of Underground Station Names - David Revill

I came across this by accident and it turned out to be a great little find. Like many others, I have often wondered about the weird and wonderful names of London's tube stations, and even though my imagination never quite stretched far enough to conjure up scenes as impressive as Neil Gaiman's (see Neverwhere) I had my own little stories about some of them. So, it was such a joy to read that some of the facts and actual history behind the stations and the names are just as weird and wonderful as any work of fiction.
