Jonathan Clarke’s illustrated study of the ‘early Steel Age’, examines the use of mass-produced steel in the structural anatomy of London’s buildings from the 1880s to 1910. Clarke first surveys the technological and economic forces that brought structural steel into being, then goes on to look at how its potential for bigger, brighter and safer buildings was exploited in London theatres, clubs and hotels, banks and offices, shops, pools and tube stations, and in industrial buildings.
