Finally, a book of old photographs that we (mostly) haven't seen before.
This is a splendid publication, beautifully produced, with an intelligent and informative text, crammed full of pictures that speak volumes to lovers of London and its vanished past. It's the forerunner and companion to the same author's later and physically larger work 'Panoramas of lost London' - which has taken some of the same material (though by no means all of it) and given it a different treatment.
'Lost London' is a good and hefty volume, well worth having - and the price tag (especially if you order from Amazon) is fantastic value.
Be warned - the book is heavy, so likely to bust any mailbag, shopping bag - or Christmas stocking!
