Year range: 1850-1899
The second half of the Nineteenth Century saw many new developments in London's public transport. Double deck horse drawn buses were joined, in 1870, by larger horse drawn trams, providing affordable transport for the working classes. The Metropolitan and District railways (built in the 1860s) joined together to form the Inner Circle beneath central London, and extended outwards into the suburbs. The world's first electric tube railway opened in 1890 from Stockwell to the City.
