Panoramas of Lost London

Whilst perusing one of the (sadly) few high street bookshops (Waterstones) remaining I came across Panoramas of Lost London: Work, Wealth, Poverty & Change 1870-1945.

Published by the English Heritage and with the involvement of Philip Davies it seems this is a second instalment to the fascinating Lost London 1870 – 1945 which was published in 2009.

The picture range is excellent from 1870 -1945 but at the rather expensive tag of £53.69 (via Amazon uk) I can see most people waiting until it is half that price in the (never-ending) sales sometime this year.

However it is a quality publication and sets out to reproduces 300 historic photographs commissioned by London County Council. To capture individual buildings and streets that, along with their entire neighbourhood, were on the threshold of redevelopment, and as with Lost London they are fascinating.
