Taking the reader on a series of walks through London, such as Knightsbridge to Covent Garden, Millbank to St James's Street and Trafalgar Square to St Paul's Cathedral, this book reflects the elegance and diversity of the city's architecture. The text is supported by drawings and photographs from the author's collection which evoke the atmosphere of London's past. All these illustrations, dating from the 17th century to the 19th, depict some surviving feature or building, so that, no matter how the view has changed, there is still something which can be identified. Maps are provided both to illustrate the walks and to pinpoint the position from which each picture was taken. Peter Jackson is the author of "London: 2000 Years of a City and Its People" and "The History of London in Maps".
