I’m very pleased to announce that I recently secured a deal with the Crowood Press for my second book: a history of Waterloo station.
Waterloo station in the 1960s by Terence Cuneo
Due to the amount of writing and research this project will require, it is likely that my posts here will become less frequent over the next few months.
But please, fear not; I have not forgotten this site!
In the meantime, please click below to view a short, quirky film called ‘Rush Hour‘ which was made at Waterloo station in 1970:

To date, I’ve written and posted over 270 articles on this site.
Due to the nature of blogging software these posts get pushed further and further back as time progresses meaning it can be tricky to discover older content.
To overcome this problem I’ve developed a new contents page where links and brief descriptions of every single article can be found.
