The Beautiful Red-Tile Tube Stations Of Leslie Green

The Beautiful Red-Tile Tube Stations Of Leslie Green.

Instantly recognisable, the red-tiled tube station is an icon of London. These much-loved stations on the Bakerloo, Northern and Piccadilly lines are the work of Leslie Green (1875-1908).

Each station is slightly different, but all use the same motifs: red-glazed tiles, large arched windows, a prominent cornice and a steel-frame structure designed to support upper floors (often never built).
