For Elizabeth's Jubilee, Curry and Simms set out to repeat the job. They selected 180 of the original prints and retook them from, as far as possible, the same viewpoints. The Queens' London" contains all 360 prints in a before and after format with accompanying notes. After a false start, when several views from St. Paul's are either from wrong angles or too confused really to make much sense, the book finds its feet and has all the magic of the time machine. When The Queen's London was published, London was the greatest city in the world. If you want to know what has changed, and what hasn't, in a century of bombs and developers, this is the book for you.

Elizabeth II (Elizabeth Alexandra Mary; born 21 April 1926) is Queen of the United Kingdom and the other Commonwealth realms. She was born in London as the first child of the Duke and Duchess of York, later King George VI and Queen Elizabeth, and she was educated privately at home. Her father acceded to the throne on the abdication of his brother King Edward VIII in 1936, from which time she was the heir presumptive

Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain is the longest-reigning monarch in British history. Stories circulated that the Queen did not want to give Diana a royal funeral, which only fueled public sentiment against the monarch.

Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain is the longest-reigning monarch in British history. She celebrated 65 years on the throne in February 2017 with her Sapphire Jubilee.

Two diamond jubilees 115 years apart—how much has London changed, and how much has it stayed the same?
