Engraving by A Ashley, after J F Burrell, entitled 'Grand Entrance to the Metropolitan Station'. The entrance to Euston Station was marked by an imposing Doric arch designed by Phillip Hardwick, which cost £35,000 to build. It was demolished, despite public protest, between November 1961 and February 1962.
