    Featuring more than 500 mostly unpublished photographs from the London County Council archive, this richly evocative book opens a window on a vanished past. Spanning 75 years, from 1870 to 1945, it charts the transition from a Dickensian world of coaching inns to the devastation of the Blitz, revealing the architectural beauty that London has lost, explaining why some buildings have survived while others have perished, and sounding a clarion call to save what remains.
