Author: Simon McNeill-Ritchie, Historic England

This illustrated history provides a nostalgic look at Central London's past and highlights the special character of some of its most important historic sites. The photographs are taken from the unique Historic England Archive, the nation’s record of 12 million photographs, drawings and publications, ranging from the 1850s and the earliest days of photography up to the present day.

The book shows Central London as it once was, from its ancient streets and alleys to its grand churches and commercial buildings. At its heart is the City of Westminster, the city of government, religion and entertainment, with many theatres, cinemas, cafés, restaurants and pubs, shopping, and most importantly, 1,000 years of history. This is where millions of tourists flock every year to soak up its history. This fascinating collection of photographs will help you discover the remarkable history and witness the changes it has undergone over the past century and more.
