Product description

Synopsis

In this second volume, writer and photographer Peter Ashley digs just a little bit deeper into the patina of London's past, revealing the rich patterns that make this the most exciting capital city on earth. His camera discovers a city's occupations that have, quite literally, disappeared, but that nevertheless leave tantalising evidence of their existence. The truly odd is explored and puzzled over - wartime ambulance stretchers recycled as council flat railings, King Lud hiding in Fleet Street, a colourful Wild West icon presenting the pipe of peace to pedestrians in St James. He gets to grips with the suburban miasma, from the largest collection of post-war pre-fabricated houses in Britain to the leonine remnants that celebrate empire in Metroland Wembley. This is an essential book for all those who enjoy living in London, visiting London, and who, in any case, ultimately love London.
