A spectacular sequel to Philip Davis's Lost London, this lavish landscape-format book reproduces historic photographs commissioned by the London County Council — many of them in the early days of photography — to capture individual buildings and streets that, along with entire neighborhoods, were on the threshold of redevelopment.

Enlarging Lost London's finest photographs reveals a wealth of hidden detail in these historic pictures — long gone street panoramas, often with haunting faces from the forgotten past live again, hoardings and shopfronts reveal their wares while architectural features and textures leap into focus.

A must for architecture and photography buffs.
