In Photos: London In 1910

We love these photos of London in 1910. Some buildings, such as Harrods and the Tower of London, have changed very little in the intervening years, while other parts of London look completely unrecognisable. Suffragettes were making headlines for their campaign to get women the vote, and Florence Nightingale passed away in her Mayfair home.
