Euston Arch, London
Philip Hardwick, Architect
The magnificent Euston Arch, built in 1837, was the original entrance to Euston station, facing onto Drummond Street, London.
The Arch was demolished in 1961 to make way for the current station. It was conceived as a Classical Propylaea — a truly grand entrance.
The massive Doric columns were 2.6m (9 ft) in diameter with the whole arch reaching up to 21m (70 ft). Ever since its demolition campaigns to see it rebuilt.
Sadly, until present, its resurrection remains a dream.
