'The Queen's London: The Metropolis in the Diamond Jubilee Years of Victoria and Elizabeth II' is a book by Jon Curry & Hugo Simms.
In 1897, the UK Commercial Travellers Association commissioned The Queen’s London: 'a pictorial and descriptive record of the Great Metropolis'. The work, a collection of some of the finest photographs of the capital ever taken, was produced to commemorate the Diamond Jubilee of her most excellent Majesty Victoria, Queen of Great Britain and Ireland and Empress of India.
'The Queens’ London' brings this story up to date. Pairing these beautifully captured vintage views with 180 images taken from identical vantage points in the London of Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee.
This Tour is based on the West End chapter of 'The Queens' London' and takes you around London in 1900.
