Overview

Journey along the length of the famed Thames River on a spectacular photographic tour. Spanning almost 150 years, the images in this evocative history include many previously unpublished photographs as well as the work of some of the pioneers and leading exponents of topographical and architectural photography. View the rural Thames as it approaches London. See the riverside towns, the working docks and warehouses, the development of the web of bridges that now links north and south, barges, sailing ships and warships, the great flood defenses, the tiny beach that briefly flourished at the Tower of London, and more. Accompanied by fascinating commentary, these photographs chronicle the ebb and flow of the life of a river, vital to a city, a nation, and the world.
