I got this book as a going-away gift after living in the UK for several years. It was a perfect reminder of my time here. The cover does look cool the way it merged from old to new, but after looking at the photos more thoroughly, that would be almost impossible to do with all the scenes without resorting to photo manipulation. I loved going through and seeing all the changes that have been made (some bad, some good) to the London landscape and trying to recognise individual buildings and areas. Or to see how some places have barely changed at all!
The photographer excelled with her night shots of London -
The writing is also good here and was an enjoyable read.
Will bring back fond memories of my London days.
