Cyril Powers
The Tube Station

Linocut (1932). Printed from five blocks: Yellow Ochre; Spectrum Red; Permanent Blue; Viridian, and Chinese Blue. Bank Road Tube Station. One of the most dynamic technological advances, at the end of the nineteenth century, had been the opening, between Paddington and Farringdon Street, London, of the world’s first Underground. By the time this print was made – in 1932 – there were at least six kilometres of track, and the Underground was one of the most potent symbols of the new industrial age. Power was fascinated by the Underground, and he depicted various aspects: from stairs and cascading escalators, to, as here, the technologically advanced curves of the tunnels and electrical signage announcing arrival of the trains.
