|This remarkable book presents a modern photographic panorama of the River Thames alongside one created by the Port of London Authority in 1937. "London''s Changing Riverscape" is a fascinating study of how the 20th century has changed the face of the historic river. What was then one of the world''s busiest ports is now the focus of a city''s regeneration, with warehouse conversions, financial institutions, and the Olympics. This updated edition shows in wonderful detail how, despite the sparkling new developments and brash architectural statements that have sprung up, a sense of continuity is apparent when the two panoramas, separated by more than 70 years, are shown side by side.|
