This fascinating collection of over 200 images takes is on a tour of the old borough of Marylebone, from Oxford Street to Edgware Road and from Baker Street to St John's Wood. They sketch Marylebone's history as one of London's smaller metropolitan areas which, in 1965, amalgamated with nearby Westminster and Paddington to form the City of Westminster. This selection was compiled mainly from private collections with contributions from Marylebone Gallery and London Metropolitan Archives. It depicts the social and commercial life of this distinctive area, showing familiar attractions such as Madame Tussaud's and Lord's Cricket Ground as well as fine Georgian houses, busy thoroughfares, long-vanished Underground statiosn and well-known shops. This unique collection of photgraphs, many of which appear in print for the first time, will jog the memory and stimulate the imagination of old and young, residents and visitors alike.
