London's Changing Riverscape: Panoramas from London Bridge to Greenwich

This remarkable book presents a modern photographic panorama of the River Thames by Charles Craig, Graham Diprose and Mike Seaborne, alongside one created by the Port of London Authority in 1937. Thames Panorama is a fascinating study of how the twentieth century has changed the face of the Thames. First published in 1988 and updated for the Millennium, this book is again being brought up to date, a sign of how rapid the pace of change has been for London's river. And yet amid the sparkling new developments and brash architectural statements that have sprung up, a sense of continuity is apparent when the two panoramas, albeit separated by more than seventy years, are shown side by side.
