An outstanding photographic portrait by a gifted young photographer, this book is for those who know and love the City as well as for tourists. It is being published in association with the Corporation of London as part of the official commemoration of the Booth anniversary of the Lord Mayor of London. One hundred striking, beautifully composed black-and-white photographs capture the famous institutions as well as the lesser known alleys and passages of the City of London. An historical record, it also shows the extraordinary juxtaposition of old and new, characteristic of today. The richness and variety of these images, taken by the photographer of The Magic of Kew, will surprise and delight even the most seasoned traveler, for there is hardly ever an expected view of the City.
