London Portrait Of A City

London calling. This is a photographic journey through the history of this epic city. Samuel Johnson famously said that: "When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life." London is a vast sprawling metropolis, constantly evolving and growing, yet throughout its complex past and shifting present, the humor, unique character, and bulldog spirit of the people have stayed constant.

This book salutes all those Londoners, their city, and its history. From Victorian London to the Swinging 60s; from the Battle of Britain to Punk; from the Festival of Britain to the 2012 Olympics; from the foggy cobbled streets to the architectural masterpieces of the millennium; from rough pubs to private drinking clubs; from Royal Weddings to raves, from the charm of the East End to the wonders of the Westminster; from Chelsea girls to Hoxton hipsters; from the power to glory: in page after page of stunning photographs London gets the photographic tribute it deserves.

Staff Reviews

This pocket version would make a great gift. It contains an iconic selection of photographs of London, its people and places from Victorian times to today. Both colour and black and white versions are included. As these are drawn from the work of a variety of photographers the different viewpoints and takes on a single city are particularly interesting. Our Deputy Image Library Manager, Hugh Alexander a man of few words but a great eye for a picture recommended we stock this book. "Great format, great images and great publisher..." is his assessment.
