Harry Beck. Graphic artist and map designer.  Born 14 Wesley Road, Leyton but he was only there for about 3 years.  He was brought up and educated in Highgate Village.  Joined London Underground in 1925 on a temporary basis and remained with them on and off until 1937 and for a few years after the war.  He produced the first version of the famous tube map in 1931.  Fell out with LT over who should make changes to the map (sounds like he became a bit obsessional).  Died in Southampton.con..

Harry Beck designed the iconic London Underground tube map in Most other urban and metro maps across the world are based on his original idea.
