Metro-Land - booklet

This book, 'Metro-Land', is the first edition of a series of books published by the Metropolitan Railway (Met) over a period of 17 years (1915–1932). It contains descriptions of the places served by the Met with photos and colour illustrations, a section on Country Walks, and a list of country apartments and hotels in the area. The front cover, illustrated by George Henry Gawthorn, shows an Edwardian lady collecting wild flowers in a country meadow. 'Metro-Land' is the term coined by the Met to refer to the new suburbs that grew in northwest London as a direct result of the developing railway line.
