The Album


Between the covers of this magnificent red Album with a gilded cover, discover more than six hundred of The Gentle Author’s favourite pictures of London appearing in print for the first time, setting the wonders of our modern metropolis against the pictorial delights of the ancient city, and celebrating the infinite variety of life in the capital – with a special emphasis upon the East End.

Take a walk through time with the Gentle Author as your guide – be equally amazed at what has been lost of old London and charmed by the unfamiliar marvels of London today.
