Synopsis

London Through Time by Angela McAllister

Follow one girl and boy on their adventure down a London street as they journey through time. As you open this concertina format, a continuous street scene unfolds, each of the panels takes you back to a different point in our capital's past. An key events panel and timeline woven into the illustrations at the bottom makes history visually accessible at a glace. Iconic and historic monuments including St Pauls, St Brides, Westminster, the London Eye and Trafalgar Square are included in street scenes that show how people lived in our city through the ages. Key time periods included are as follows: The Roman settlement; Medieval period (the black death); Tudor times (the invention of the printing press); The great fire of London; 1700s (the building of St Brides); Georgian London; Victorian times and the industrial age, Edwardian London (suffragettes and early cars); WW1 (soldiers marching down the streets); Between the wars; WW2 (The Blitz); The 1050s (black cabs and Routemasters appear); Elizabeth II's coronation; Modern day London in Trafalgar Sq.

Reviews
