London is both a bright, modern city with soaring skyscrapers as well as a metropolis hundreds of years old. Despite the gleaming surface, there is another side to the city, one of hidden secrets, dilapidation and mystery. From the disused stations on the Underground to the immense, ornate Victorian sewers and waterworks, from crumbling but beautiful Art Deco cinemas and empty swimming pools to ruined mansions and overgrown cemeteries, Abandoned London celebrates haunting remnants from a time gone by.
Arranged thematically from transport to industry, residential to commercial, these entries cover both the modern city and the historical metropolis, from hidden reservoirs to deserted tram stations, from bombed-out churches and forgotten factories to ice wells and eerie docklands.
With 200 outstanding colour photographs and fascinating captions, Abandoned London is a brilliant pictorial exploration of lost worlds.
