"Its ingenious informal arrangement makes the book a real pleasure" -- Sunday Times
London like you've never seen it before, from the birth of photography to nowSee all Product description
Top customer reviews
The photographs are breathtaking capturing London at various stages in the last hundred (or so) years. Some of the photographs you will remember, some you won't believe, but all captured and printed in lovely detail. The descriptions are well written and go into just enough detail to make it interesting.
An ideal present for old and young or treat yourself!
Some of the famous faces featured in the collection include the Kray brothers, Reggie and Ronnie as amateur boxers posing with their mother Violet, before they went on to become notorious London gangsters. Other striking images include Daleks invading a London street outside Wyndams Theatre in 1965, Blitz searchlights over St Paul's Cathedral on New Year's Eve 1943 and men rescuing residents in Rotherhithe from flood when the Thames broke its banks in 1928.
Other memorable images include a pair of cheery men enjoying jellied eels in a Whitechapel street on a Sunday morning, two young Fulham fans ahead of an FA cup clash with Ipswich in the late 1950s and a crowd of shoppers at Petticoat Lane street market in London's East End.
A super book to pick up and browse through and great value for money too!
I think this book would make a fantastic gift for anyone who lives in or particularly likes London or indeed anyone who would like to see some truly amazing and provocative imagery of times gone by.
A compact book, but good use is made of the space available - picures are mostly to the edge, and captions minimal but adequate (and plaudits for reminding readers that "Eros" is actually Anteros).
