Description: The Euston Arch was the original entrance to Euston station in Central London. Designed by architect Philip Hardwick, it was inspired by Roman architecture, following Hardwick's trip to Italy in 1818-19. The 'Propylaeum' or Doric arch (1837) of stone pillars and iron gating, 70 feet high, was designed for the London and Birmingham Railway, mirroring Curzon Street Station at the other end of the L&BR. The arch was demolished in 1962 to make way for construction of the current Euston Station building. Its imminent demolition sparked a preservation protest. The rubble was used to strengthen a river bank in east London. There is now a campaign to recover the surviving parts and rebuild the arch, possibly in a London park. http://www.geocities.com/londondestruction/arch.html
