Short biography of Charles Yerkes in The Economist
« on: January 04, 2015, 08:40:28 PM »
Those who know even a little about the history of the London Underground will have heard of Charles Yerkes, who pioneered much of the network that still exists now at the turn of the 20th century. There is a short but interesting history of his endeavours in The Economist to-day, which might be of interest to some.
