In 1897, the UK Commercial Travellers Association commissioned "The Queen's London": 'a pictorial and descriptive record of the Great Metropolis'. The work, a collection of some of the finest photographs of the capital ever taken, was produced to commemorate the Diamond Jubilee of her most excellent Majesty Victoria, Queen of Great Britain and Ireland and Empress of India. In 2012, when the eyes of the world will be on London, "The Queens' London" brings this story up to date. Pairing these beautifully captured vintage views with 180 images taken from identical vantage points in the London of Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee, it gives the reader a fascinating perspective on the history behind London's familiar streets. Richly illustrated with colour and with black and white, this stunning collection will delight Londoners and visitors alike.
