About this deal

More than 500 spectacular unseen photographs of London, taken between 1875 and 1945, from the Archives of English Heritage. I actually collect old photographs myself, so the subject matter is naturally of interest to me, but this informative book also taught me an awful lot that I didn’t know about London in days gone by. The best book in my library is definitely this book of old photos of London, so I am reproducing this review here by way of recommending it. There’d be speeches in parliament, editorials in the Mail and Nigel Farage would turn up to be photographed in front of the removals van. That was 1971, the moment when the destructive, let-us-build-a-brave-new-world forces of the postwar period were finally in retreat, rattled by a rising storm of protest at the obliteration of familiar townscapes.

I’d better speed up here, because there’s no way I can do justice to more than a handful of entries. Lost in London' movie release date, latest news: Woody Harrelson stars in first-ever live streamed movie". uk has been providing in-depth coverage of the UK capital’s politics, development and culture since February 2017. While Davies, in his Introduction, does a great job to explain the importance of the images from an architectural history perspective and while he provides us with a socio-economic reference frame for the period covered, it is the images themselves that tell that story best.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: The 5 year expiry date on the Freedom Pass is the lifespan of the card chip, and is not how long someone is entitled to hold the pass for. In many cases the photographer has attracted a significant level of interest, and in addition to the groups of people posing for the camera, faces can be seen leaning out of windows watching what’s going on. As primary sources of historical evidence, [the photographs] are by their very nature impartial, and bear witness to past places or events, undistorted by the interpretation of their creator. I like architecture, because it’s in the blood: my uncle ran his own practice in Oxford and my great-great uncle was an architectural draughtsman, and a fine West Country watercolourist in the early 20th century (Arthur Fare, if you’re interested). Light shelf wear to tips, corners, and edges of the book and jacket, top edge dusty else clean and unmarked.On the north side of Westminster Bridge (by the way, London’s second bridge, opposed at its construction by City chauvinists) the Opera House began construction during the 1870s. Renovation and adaptation is invariably cheaper than new-build; though new materials used are so frequently less substantial than the old. The book's main objective is to create a sense of urgency with the viewers of the importance of preserving architectural gems.
