The booking hall at Upminster Bridge with swastika floor motif - photograph
- In its modern architectural style, the interior of the booking hall at Upminster Bridge station has much in common with other Underground stations of the 1930s. However, the station was not actually part of London Transport's expansion programme. It was built by the London Midlands & Scottish Railway (L.M.S.) in 1934, although that particular section of track was served by the Metropolitan line. In the early 1930s, a swastika pattern was laid out in tiles on the booking hall floor. It was a popular decorative design at the time and did not acquire its negative associations with German Nazism until later. The motif still survives in the station.
