Russell Square tube station
This impressively preserved station on the Piccadilly Line was the brainchild of American Charles Tyson Yerkes, who arrived in 1900 to get away from an adulterous private life in New York and a lynch mob of angry investors in Chicago.
Despite previously serving a prison sentence for fraud, his formidable persuasive skills and 'interesting' fund-raising methods helped to construct much of London's deep-level tube system.
