Description

This book takes a photographic tour of one of the City of Westminster's more distinctive areas, and with a wealth of archive images set alongside comparison photographs from the present day shows how old neighbourhoods have evolved through the decades. Along the way are the carefully preserved Victorian streets of Pimlico's early development and some of the grittier byways which have yielded to war damage and great modern housing estates. The pages are filled with pubs and local traders together with canal and Thames side industry. The local transportation is represented by images of vintage buses and antiquated trams alongside the great transport interchanges which characterise northern Pimlico. Pimlico Through Time offers a fresh look at a much loved London area and will delight and intrigue local residents and visitors alike.
