The City of London is where London began 2,000 years ago when the Romans invaded Britannia. Today it is one of the most important financial centres in the world. With much destruction during the bombing of the Second World War, the City has reinvented itself into a high-tech business city, and through these photographic postcards you can see how ‘The Square Mile’ was over the past 100 years. Fred Judge, an early twentieth-century photographer, was a pioneer of early postcard publishing; he set new standards with high-quality artistic photographic images. This lavish book of stunning and atmospheric photographs and sketches of the historic and ancient City of London is complemented by photographs of scenes of London’s villages including Kensington and Chelsea. Produced in sepia and monotone, with sketches drawn by Fred Judge and his artists, this book is the perfect gift for Londoners and visitors alike. Warren Grynberg, the author, has dedicated his career to the history of London and its people. He is a City of London Guide-Lecturer and a London Blue Badge Guide. The Blue Badge is recognised internationally as a benchmark of excellence in tourist guiding.
