Dates of development2011 – Present

I began to build Tube History in 2011 while I attended university. The project began as a simple website that allowed me to publish the research that I had done about the history of the London Underground network. This quickly expanded and as my website development skills advanced the site became more complex.

Why Tube History?

I have a particular passion for the history of the London Underground network and find the development of the network interesting. I had been researching the history of the network and documenting my research in a series of personal documents.

The opportunity arose while I was at Kingston University, to develop a website that contained the research that I had previously completed.

I began to develop the website using HTML and CSS, to create a basic website. A part of the assignment from my course was to create a basic website and, using PHP, to add additional functions to improve the user experience. While adding these additional functions, the site continued to grow as I added more information.

As the website grew, it became apparent that the site will continue to grow as I developed my website development skills and investigated further into the history of the London Underground network.

I have continued to develop the website using HTML, CSS, PHP and have been adding a series of JavaScript functions to improve the user interaction with the website. Furthermore, I use the website to demonstrate new technological developments in website construction and the diversification of my skills and abilities.

The continual development of Tube History has led to various incarnations of the site over time. I have also rebranded the site to better focus on the subject matter.
