White City

White City. The sports stadium was opened in 1908 to house part of the Franco-British Exhibition. The strikingly white finish of the buildings, and the exhibits in the main hall (all of which were white), earned the stadium its name.

The Hammersmith & City Line station was opened on 1 May 1908, and the Central Line station on 14 May 1908, both as WOOD LANE.

The Central Line station was re-sited and both re¬named WHITE CITY 23 November 1947. The Hammersmith & City station was closed from 25 October 1959; since 1 November 1914 it had been used only on special occasions.
