Product Description

Publisher: Batsford (Mar 2012)

Author: Paul Cohen-Portheim

First published in 1935, this classic snapshot of London in the years before the Second World War glows with its Austrian author's affection for British life and customs yet also abounds with critical insight. Exploring the London scene in a time when age-old traditions were stubbornly resisting the tides of modernism, Paul Cohen-Portheim reflects on the enduring spirit embodied in the city's people, its buildings, its culture, and its history.
