Celebrates the iconic and historic city of London.
Follow one girl and boy on their adventure down a London street as they journey through time. As you open this concertina format, a continuous street scene unfolds, each of the panels takes you back to a different point in our capital's past. An key events panel and timeline woven into the illustrations at the bottom makes history visually accessible at a glace. Iconic and historic monuments including St Pauls, St Brides, Westminster, the London Eye and Trafalgar Square are included in street scenes that show how people lived in our city through the ages.
