Secret, surprising and unusual places to discover in the Capital
by Peter Dazeley; Mark Daly
This title offers a unique glance at one photographer’s London. Organized by neighborhood, the book features photographs with descriptions of the sites. Some of these are well-known, while others were certainly new to me. For example, there is a Foundling Hospital where Handel had been a patron. Then, what about the London Sewing Machine Museum or Raqib Shaw’s Sausage Factory. There are also more familiar sites including the London Library and Lambeth Palace Gardens. Both armchair and real travelers may well enjoy losing themselves in these pages. The text that accompanies the photos is packed with information. I found this to be an absorbing escape from my own home.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher. All opinions are my own.
