    In 1897, a collection of photographs of London landmarks, from St Paul's Cathedral to Horseguards' Parade, was published to mark Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee. This captivating book brings the project into the 21st century, matching the originals to modern colour pictures taken from the same viewpoints. Arranged geographically, the paired images range along the Thames through Westminster and the City and out to Camden and Lambeth. While some scenes remain almost unaltered, others have changed beyond recognition.
