This compilation of photographs explores two of west central London's historic areas through rare images, many unseen in over a century, alongside modern photographs for comparison. Bloomsbury is renowned for its fine architecture, rich cultural heritage, universities and specialist hospitals while Bohemian Fitzrovia is a colourful restaurant centre set in busy streets dating from the 1700s. Our pictorial tour takes us through gas-lit streets, grand squares and flavourful byways and includes a look at one of London's old German quarters. Along the way are lost neighbourhoods, shops where our ancestors procured their household essentials and a cinema which pioneered performances of coloured movie films. This book will revive many local memories and will delight and intrigue the resident and visitor alike.
