Edwardian London in Photos

I recently came across a book containing views of Edwardian London that I hadn't seen before on the net.


Three Hundred and Fifty Views - London, was published by Wyman & Sons Ltd in 1908.


This book was produced as a pretty bland tourist souvenir. There is no text and all the photographers are anonymous. A century after publication the images are probably of far more interest than they when they were first taken.


So far I have published 50 of the images in a Facebook album. Here are some of the most popular, in high quality for the first time.
