In Photos: London In 1900

The Victorians didn't have camera phones, making these snaps below all the more special. Some areas still look familiar to Londoners today, while other aspects are so alien, they look like a film set. See the first ever West Ham football team, horse-drawn buses, and a Victorian cabman's shelter.
