The pic of Cheapside is fantastic. It's so London, yet reminds me hugely of some pictures of the Lower East Side and Little Italy in NYC during the same period.

Poor London Bridge...

Please DON'T full-quote image posts! Especially not when they're on the same page. @Dr. Mabuse and others


Great photochromes, anyway. I love this technique.

Looking at all the photos on this thread, one thing in particular comes to mind;

Increasingly car-centric mentalities have, to an extent, ruined our cityscapes. At the least, they have made them far less attractive.

It was sinking, and had to be replaced anyway. Plus it was not exceptional, either historically or architecturally. The one that I regret losing is the medieval London Bridge that preceeded it, especially as it was only demolished around 1800.

Yeah, that thing must have been awesome!

When some crazy dude from Texas (?) buys London Bridge again, it MUST be rebuilt in the medieval style, it just has to!


Here a video taken in my hometown, in 1923.
(Funny things: spot the face in the tower at 0:46 and watch a prewar accident happen at 2:02!)

In fact it has better than many other comparable cities (especially the ones in Russia) but not without painful losses. As you see, 2 of the 3 churches visible in the first picture don't exist any more (the third one, St.Trinity Cathedral, stays out of the frame of the contemporary photo but it's still there).
As well the Annunciation church near the bridge (the 6th pair of photos) is gone.

St. Petersburg is gorgeous. But it needs to reconstruct some of its major squares back from traffic wastelands to attractive pedestrian areas.

The most prominent of them are pedestrian (Palace Sq.) or mostly pedestrian (Senate Sq.) already, hardly wastelands. But there is still much to do. There are some officially approved plans to develop a new large pedestrian area in the very center of the city but they are still rather vague.
