LOST LON­DON 1870- 1945

Evergreen - - Then & Now - Philip Davies Fore­word by HRH The Duke of Glouces­ter

A unique por­trait into Lon­don’s past

A spec­tac­u­lar col­lec­tion of more than 500 pho­to­graphs from the archives of English Her­itage ( now His­toric Eng­land) pro­vid­ing a unique record of whole dis­tricts of Lon­don as they were van­ish­ing. Each of the pho­to­graphs is a full- plate im­age, a stun­ning work of art in its own right.

Lost Lon­don 1870- 1945 is about the lost build­ings and streets and about why some have re­mained and fl our­ished while oth­ers have been swept away, but this is not a nos­tal­gic lament for a lost city. Writ­ten by Philip Davies, an ex­pert who has been in­volved in plan­ning and de­vel­op­ment in Lon­don for over 35 years, the book of­fers author­i­ta­tive in­sights into the way Lon­don has de­vel­oped and changed since the Vic­to­rian age. ( 368pp, hard­back)
