This England Gifts LOST LONDON 1870-1945 A unique portrait of London’s past A spectacular collection of more than 500 photographs from the archives of English Heritage (now Historic England) providing a unique record of whole districts of London as they were vanishing. Each of the photographs is a full-plate image, a stunning work of art in its own right. Lost London 1870-1945 is about the lost buildings and streets and about why some have remained and fl ourished while others have been swept away, but this is not a nostalgic lament for a lost city. Written by Philip Davies, an expert who has been involved in planning and development in London for over 35 years, the book offers authoritative insights into the way London has developed and changed since the Victorian age. (368pp, hardback) ‘This is a beautiful, haunting and heartbreaking book.’ — DAN CRUICKSHANK ‘Here are 360 pages of sustained shock and awe… in pin sharp clarity.’ — THE TIMES Philip Davies Foreword by HRH The Duke of Gloucester ‘An endlessly absorbing book that is at once a record of destruction, a haunting collection of relics and a door into the past.’ — SUNDAY TIMES ‘An extraordinary — and sometimes upsetting — record of the capital’s architectural richness.’ — SUNDAY TELEGRAPH Code: LOSTL RRP £50, This England readers pay just £30 incl. p&p.
