Harry W. Ford

Born Harry Wharton Ford.  Architect to the District Railway from 1900-11 and designed a number of stations on the District Line including: Earl's Court, Barons Court, Hammersmith and Walham Green.

The book Metroart in the Metropolis credits Ford with the design of the "bullseye" roundel in 1909. This is normally credited to Johnstone but perhaps the original idea was Ford's.
