M@Lost London: Unseen Photos Of Our City @ Kenwood House
Who doesn't like old, black and white images of London? The fashions are more hat-based, the engines have four legs and nobody has white wires going into their ears. Kenwood House, at the posher end of Hampstead Heath, has a new photographic exhibition of around 100 London images from the English Heritage archive. The pictures, many previously unseen by the general public, span the years 1870 to 1945, a period in which London went from a thrusting imperial capital to a crumbling, war-torn wreck. Click through the gallery above to get a taster.
Lost London runs 23 January to 5 April at Kenwood House. Entrance is free, and you get to see an impressive collection of Old Masters on permanent display to boot. All images (c) English Heritage.
