150th Anniversary of London Underground
British Pathé celebrates 150 years of the Tube with a collection of clips featuring construction footage dating from 1922. You can also see the tunnels used as air raid shelters during the Second World War, extensions of the lines in the late 1940s, and the work of cleaners and technicians after-hours. The innovations of the 1950s also get a look-in, while there is extensive coverage of the building of the Victoria Line, as well as its opening by the Queen. There are also some images from the 1970s and a brief documentary on the 7/7 London Bombings. Click here to explore the collection.Source: britishpathe.com
