Lost Destination: Euston Arch - Special Edition for LTM
Designed EXCLUSIVELY for London Transport Museum shop but now available to buy from Dorothy.
Euston Arch was designed by Philip Hardwick and completed in 1838. It stood 70ft tall and was built as the original entrance to Euston Station, but soon fell out of favour and was controversially demolished in the 1960s despite numerous attempts to relocate it. Following the discovery of the arch’s remains in the Prescott Channel and the recent activity of Euston Arch Trust, it is speculated that it will be rebuilt as part of the HS2 development of Euston.
Part of our Lost Destination series of prints which takes inspiration from the iconic travel posters of the first half of the 20th century. They celebrate the unique but often forgotten beauty of buildings that in their heyday were destinations in their own right, but have since been either immersed in the everyday or demolished.
