'Then and now' comparisons of London are nothing new, but photographer 'Roll the Dice' brings both quantity and quality — and a certain amount of inventiveness — to the genre.
He recreates not only old photographs of the capital, but also seeks out locations from music videos, classic sitcoms, and forgotten films. His archive now contains hundreds of comparison shots from both central London and the suburbs. He's kindly shared these with us in the Londonist Flickr pool, and we're delighted to pick out a few highlights for your perusal.
These and many other shots, plus some superior street photography, can be viewed on Roll the Dice's Flickr stream, and at a larger size than we can fit in our column.
