Holloway Road tube station
Holloway Road tube station
The glazed terra cotta fašade of this tube station is typical of the work of Leslie William Green, who designed several tube stations in a similar style in the first decade of the 20th century. This station opened in 1906 as a stop on the Great Northern, Piccadilly & Brompton Railway, whose initials can be seen under the right hand hemispherical window. The railway later became part of the Piccadilly Line. The road is the A1 Holloway Road which appears to have lost several sections of its central reservation railings.
