From the neon skeleton of Richard Rogers' high-tech Lloyds Building to a dimly-lit Dickensian backstreet in Lambeth, night-time London is a city of surprises and contradictions. This book attempts to capture the spirit of London after dark. Through Alan Delaney's perceptive lens familiar buildings take on a surprising new aspect: Tower Bridge, Canary Wharf, Kings Cross Station ...all appear, literally, in a new light. Besides these well-known architectural monuments Delaney also reveals some of London's best-kept nocturnal secrets: from an old highwaymen's haunt in Hackney to an impeccably preserved 1950s dairy in Bethnal Green. The photographs are matched by Robert Cowan's informed text, which provides historical background and anecdotes.
