5.0 out of 5 stars Urban history at its best, 11 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
London's Lost Power Stations and Gasworks is not just an informative book, but an accessible one too. As someone who has only really started looking into the history of London in the last year, I felt that this book offered insightful commentary into a less-talked about area of industrial history in a language I could understand. I haven't yet read the author's other book about London's lost underground stations but after reading this volume it is definitely very high on my reading list. In addition to the carefully constructed prose, the photography in this book illustrates the transitions described and is also thoughtfully shot. In summary - if you're interested in reading something more compelling than the average London guide or want to better understand London's industrial history without wading through lengthy, dull tomes, you can't go wrong with this book.
