Summary:Over the past 60 years the changes made to Britain's urban landscape, and London in particular, have been more dramatic than at any period in recorded history. Not only has large scale redevelopment changed the face of the capital but it is now crowded with a vast array of street furniture, not to mention cars and other forms of transport. Retail individuality has also been lost as the growth of high street chains create a less varied and more uniform streetscape. More and more people are looking to the past as the nostalgia for a time when the motor car was less dominant and life was less hectic continues to grow. Lost London In Colour is packed with previously unpublished photographs revealing the life and times of a changing city. Alongside photographs of long-departed trams and trolleybuses are fascinating images of streetscapes from the past.
