Early Images of the Waterloo and City Line - 1898

The London and South Western Railway, which terminated at Waterloo, had always dreamed of reaching the city since that station had been built in 1848. Therefore, when the Waterloo and City Railway was projected in 1892 the LSWR supported it heavily, even placing four of its directors on its board. The line opened on July 1898, and being the nation's second deep level tube it attracted much attention in the press. These pictures were found in an edition of The Graphic from 16 July 1898.
