London 1870-1914 featured in the Literary Review

Saint magnificently conveys just how much shifted in the decades he describes. A superb architectural historian, he is of course completely assured in accounting for changing fashions in architecture. But he is equally compelling in his discussion of the impact of the telephone and electric light on London… He writes convincingly about politics as well as about social and cultural life… The outcome of a lifetime’s labour, Andrew Saint’s London is a triumph.
