Administrative/Biographical history:

The Northern Line extension to Morden and the station there were constructed in 1926 by the City and South London Railway. The company obtained permission to open a garage opposite the station where commuters could leave their cars and then contine their journey by tube. They also offered minor repairs and sold petrol. The right of the company to establish such undertakings was debated in Parliament - while the need to encourage measures to reduce traffic congestion in London was acknowledged, running garages was considered too far outside the remit of the company and a threat to local small business and futher such undertakings were discouraged.
