Curiosities of London Exhibiting the most Rare and Remarkable Objects of Interest in the Metropolis with Nearly Sixty Years’ Personal Recollections – John Timbs, 1867:
Subways, or passages beneath the streets of the metropolis, were advocated in 1828, by Mr. Williams, of Birchin-lane, in a bulky octavo volume. In 1859, this great improvement was commenced by the Board of Works under the new street leading from Cranbourn-street to Covent Garden.
