London Then and Now - People and Places Hardback

Part of the Then and Now series

Description

London Then and Now - People and Places takes an amazing cross-section of vintage photographs of London from the 1850s through to the 1960s, and pairs them up with the same view as it looks today.

The great tourist destinations are all included: Buckingham Palace, Tower of London, Houses of Parliament, Whitehall, Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden, the British Museum, St.

Pauls Cathedral and Hyde Park, along with classic London pubs, famous theatres, the grand stations, and Carnaby Street and the Kings Road. The book travels along the Thames through Hammersmith, Barnes and Richmond out to Hampton Court, plus we get a fleeting glimpse of Chuck Berry and the Rolling Stones posing on Park Lane and walking out of court in Southcombe Street.

There are Dickensian street scenes, plus 'The Old Curiosity Shop' and coaching inns that Dickens visited.

Sites include: Albert Hall, Albert Memorial, Bank of England, Grosvenor Square, Chelsea, Cleopatra's Needle, Selfridges, Earls Court, Fleet Street, Soho, Haymarket, Kensington High Street, Kew Gardens, Leicester Square, Oxford Street, Paddington, Piccadilly Circus, Savoy Hotel, V&A, Natrual History Museum, National Theatre, Festival Hall, Waterloo and much more.
