Abandoned London Discover the hidden secrets of the city in photographs by Katie Wignall Amber Books Ltd
Beautiful photographs and interesting history make this book a joy to read, although it is sad to see so many of them becoming derelict and covered in graffiti. The buildings range from elegant Edwardian public baths, grand Victorian sanitary stations and art-deco Tube stations to more prosaic industrial structures. There are sections about all the different types of abandoned buildings, such as pubs and shops. It's great to see that some of them have been bought and are due to be restored.
London is my favourite city, and I plan to check out some of these places next time I go. Unfortunately, that doesn't look as though it will be any time soon!
I received this free ebook from NetGalley in return for an honest review.
