The Queen's London : The Metropolis in the Diamond Jubilee Years of Victoria and Elizabeth II Hardback
by Jon Curry, Hugo Simms
In the last years of the nineteenth century, The Queen's London: A Pictorial and Descriptive Record of the Great Metropolis was published.
The work, a collection of some of the finest photographs of the capital ever taken, was produced to commemorate the Diamond Jubilee of her most excellent Majesty Victoria, Queen of Great Britain and Ireland and Empress of India. In 2012, when the eyes of the world will be on London, The Queens' London brings this story up to date.
Pairing these beautifully captured vintage views with 180 images taken from identical vantage points in the London of Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee, it gives the reader a fascinating perspective on the history behind London's familiar streets.
