Description

Walk around the City of London today and you will see a modern, high-tech business city, one of the world's most important financial centres. But it wasn't always like that. The City is where London began and for many hundreds of years it was densely populated - teeming with life. Even at the turn of the 20th century there was a large resident population, compared with about 9,000 to 10,000 today. The City was a busy thriving place, the docks were still functioning and industry and commerce were conducted not only on weekdays but also in the evening and at weekends. It was also where families lived, worked and played. The many rare and atmospheric photographs and postcards in this book show how the City of London used to be. Once you've found out where to look and what to look for, you'll be surprised at how much of the old City you can still find...and this book will help you to find it.
