As the single most important source of knowledge on the nations capital, it is uniquely both a national and local museum. Over a million objects are held in the Museums stores, cared for by curators and conservators who are all leaders in their field. This, the official guide to the Museum of London, covers all aspects of social, cultural and political life in London from the first prehistoric settlements, right up to its present position as a financial and artistic world city. By selecting significant pieces of ceramics, jewellery, paintings, photographs, printed ephemera, sculpture and a range of commercial, industrial and domestic items from the entire collection, this book conveys the sheer size and variety of the Museums holdings. With specially commissioned colour photographs and monochrome archival prints, it dramatically displays every aspect of London life.
