Walk around any famous city and layers of history start to emerge. In London, Westminster Abbey is dwarfed by the Shard and the Gherkin, while in Rome, ancient treasures like the Colosseum stand beside buildings from the Renaissance. Offering a fun look at architecture and urban development for readers 9 to 12, this book also surveys Paris, New York City, Beijing, and Istanbul, with texts that identify key figures and events from the city's past. Important buildings are shown in two-page cityscape illustrations and identified in captions, and die-cut openings in the pages highlight differences in these places over time.
