A talk on how London’s transport shaped the growth of the city by the heritage manager at Transport for London (TfL) is being held in memory of a 18-year-old student who died of blood cancer.

In the 50 minute talk held at Station Hall on Railton Road on February 26, Edmund Bird will take a fascinating dive into London’s history.

Mr Bird has been heritage manager of TfL since 2006, with responsibility for protecting the organisation’s rich architectural heritage which includes over 100 listed Underground, Overground and TfL Rail stations, and many of the Thames bridges.

Before taking up this post he was head of conservation at Lambeth and Camden councils.

Ruby Fuller, from Herne Hill, who was a huge fan of the London Underground. 

He has also written a five volume architectural history of Lambeth 1837-2000 commissioned by the Borough’s Archives and Planning departments.

The talk is being given in memory of 18 year old Ruby Fuller, from Herne Hill, who was a huge fan of the London Underground.

Ruby dreamed of working for TfL one day but half way through her A levels she was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of blood cancer.

She died in May 2020, a few months after her 18th birthday.

All proceeds from the event will go towards Ruby’s Live Kindly Live Loudly Fund, set up with Children’s Cancer and Leukaemia Group (CCLG) to support research to find kinder and more effective blood cancer treatments.
