South Kensington Station for the Underground

South Kensington Station for the Underground, London. Photograph (copyright 2001 George P. Landow) may be used without prior permission for any scholarly or educational purpose.

Note how the architect has employed simple columns similar to those Philip Hardwick employed for the Doric Arch at Euston Station (1839), which functioned as both a triumphal arch and a gate to the city. The double-ended station here alsio serves as an small arcade.
