    DescriptionWith over 250 stunning photographs of people and places all over London in the 1920s, Forgotten London charts a decade of great change and progress in England's capital. From children playing on the coconut shy at the Blackheath village fete, to the bankers milling around Threadneedle Street and the flapper girls leaving Mayfair clubs in the early hours of the morning, all walks of life are documented in this charming collection. Includes sections on London's transport, men and - for the first time - women at work, the poor and homeless of London, sporting and leisure events and the children growing up in the city, all accompanied by a fascinating commentary from social historians Philippa Lewis and Liz Drury. Capturing unique events such as the BBC broadcasting the sounds of London Zoo over the wireless to the city's terraced houses, or when a flock of sheep were herded amongst the traffic on the Strand, this is a wonderful glimpse into life in 'The Big Smoke' in the period between the world wars.
