Tooting Broadway Underground Station
Tooting Broadway Underground Station
The station was opened on 13 September 1926 as part of the Morden extension of the City & South London Railway south from Clapham Common.

Along with the other stations on the Morden extension, the building was designed by architect Charles Holden. They were Holden's first major project for the Underground.the modernist design takes the form of a double-height curving screen clad in white Portland stone with a three-part glazed screen in the centre of the façade divided by columns of which the capitals are three-dimensional versions of the Underground roundel. The central panel of the screen contains a large version of the roundel.
The bronze statue of Edward VII on a granite plinth predates the Northern line’s arrival by 15 years and was erected by public subscription.
