After the Great Fire, Londoners faced the challenge of rebuilding their devastated city. They did so with a very English compromise between modernity and tradition. This intriguing book opens up new perspectives on the story in an account of how and why the new City of London was rebuilt as it was after 1666. The original appearance of the new, late 17th-century London is re-created in some three hundred pictures.
