About the Book:
Explore a rapidly changing and dynamic London.
Discover the growth and development of London over the last 80 years. Historian Philip Parker reveals how the city has been transformed through fascinating historic and contemporary A-Z Maps.
From 1936, when Phyllis Pearsall walked every one of London’s 23,000 streets to produce the first A-Z map, to a city today where London’s skyline has evolved from Big Ben and Tower Bridge to include the City, Canary Wharf, Tate Modern and The Shard.
This compelling narrative reflects the diversity and international influences on our dynamic and ever changing city with coverage of every aspect of London life: from hospitals, health, education, architecture, markets, trade and transport to entertainment, sport, fashion, media, museums, parks and London films.
