The collector BEC Howarth-Loomes assembled an extraordinary library of prints of London in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The hundreds of images reproduced in this book depict not only landmarks such as St Paul's, Westminster Abbey and the Houses of Parliament, but the commercial life of the city, its bridges thronged with horse- drawn traffic and its expanding suburbs. Richly evocative of a vanished age, they are full of interest for lovers of old London and social historians alike.
