From the beginning of the Victorian age to the end of World War II, London’s landscape was transformed, with streets and buildings, from yards and alleys to slums and Whitehall mansions, swept away. In this talk Philip Davies takes us on a captivating journey into this lost London world. Sharing photographs from this new publication, Lost London, and shedding light on the stories behind the images, Philip will also provide a fascinating insight into the way London has developed and changed since the Victorian age.

Philip Davies is the Planning and Development Director at English Heritage for London and South-East England. A historian and chartered town planner, he is the author of several books on architecture and social history, as well as numerous articles on conservation and planning.

This event is organised in partnership with Newham Bookshop.
