About the Book
This book is a collection of photographs of distressed buildings. These buildings are destined either to decay further and to be demolished, or to be improved. In either case they will not remain as shown in the book. But this series is not a celebration of some glorious past. We know that Victorian London could be a dark and squalid place. The author was born and has always lived in London. It is the habit and practice of the author to collect. He walks around the city finding images to fit into the current collection. What this series of photographs seeks to do is to say – look at this!
