Drawing on the resources of English Heritage's unrivalled photographic archives, this book is a photographic journey along the length of Thames River over the course of almost 150 years. In the crisp, black and white images here, the massive ocean liner Great Eastern is seen under construction, Battersea Park is lit with an enchanting glow, miners pose in the Rotherhithe Tunnel below the Thames, and swimmers enjoy a tiny beach that flourished briefly at the Tower of London. All of the views here depict a bygone Britain, revealed through its riverside towns, docks, bridges, and landscapes, as well as its resilient people.
