Synopsis

London, the capital and heart of Britain, is an exciting and constantly developing city. London Then and Now explores London's landscape, past and present, through the eye of the camera. Some 70 historic photographs of London's past are paired with specially commissioned contemporary views taken from the same vantage point. In spite of wartime damage and postwar planning, so many of the buildings that characterise London still remain. The book features the fascinating vistas of London that have changed little and some that have changed radically, from the regeneration of the south bank, the docklands in the east to the transformation of a power station into Tate Modern. Part of the bestselling 'Then and Now' series, this charming contrast of old and new photographs highlights the stunning changes - and the equally amazing similarities - of one of the most loved cities in Britain, its well-known places but also some of the hidden gems.
