Description
From the British Library, a fascinating and evocative delve into the layered history and evolving cultural associations of some of London’s most buzzing, eclectic and intriguing neighbourhoods. Camden Town: 5 landmarks serve as starting-points to explore the area’s changing personality. The World's End pub existed in various forms before Camden began. The Regent's Canal Bridge is where today's crowds flock to the locks and market, while Arlington House, just a block away, belongs to a parallel Camden of immigration and new beginnings, poverty and homelessness. No. 8 Royal College Street represents how, even with the first buildings of nineteenth-century Camden Town, social outsiders were attracted to the area. Meanwhile the Roundhouse, an engineering curiosity, was to become the revered centre of Camden's cultural scene. Illustrated with archival and contemporary images.
