Harry Beck. Graphic artist and map designer. Born 14 Wesley Road, Leyton but he was only there for about 3 years. He was brought up and educated in Highgate Village. Joined London Underground in 1925 on a temporary basis and remained with them on and off until 1937 and for a few years after the war. He produced the first version of the famous tube map in 1931. Fell out with LT over who should make changes to the map (sounds like he became a bit obsessional). Died in Southampton.con..
It was on one such expedition on 4 July 1862 that Dodgson invented the outline of the story that eventually became his first and greatest commercial success. He told the story to Alice Liddell and she begged him to write it down, and Dodgson eventually (after much delay) presented her with a handwritten, illustrated manuscript entitled Alice's Adventures Under Ground in November 1864.
