    London In Black And White

    Link: London in black and white | BBC History Magazine

    Sixty rare images of London, sourced from the London Metropolitan Archives, are now on show at Tower Bridge. The photographs, some of which date back to the late 19th century, represent six categories of London life: Tower Bridge, waterways, work, life, buildings and boats.
    Although there are 60 pictures in the exhibition there are only 13 that can be viewed on this website.



    View from St Paul’s Cathedral, 1942 City of London, London Metropolitan Archives

    This view from St Paul’s Cathedral looking towards Southwark Bridge shows the extent of bomb damage following the demolition of unsafe buildings in 1942

    Yeah. I had just corrected that.

    I was going to include a different picture and changed my mind at the last moment but didn't change the text below the picture before posting.
