Maida Vale


Maida Vale, though used as the name of a district, is really only a street name. It takes its name from Maida, a town in Calabria, Italy, where Sir John Stuart defeated the French in 1806. The street was mentioned in 1868, runs north to south and is, in fact, part of the Edgware Road.

Prior to the station's opening the name of ELGIN AVENUE was proposed, but it opened as MAIDA VALE on 6 June 1915.
