About the Author:


Mark Daly is a writer and publisher with a longstanding interest in secret and little-known aspects of London. He has also devised a number of London walking tours, focussing on little-known or unusual aspects of the city. His previous book with Dazely is the acclaimed Unseen London.

Peter Dazeley, known as Dazeley, was born in West Kensington and studied photography at Holland Park School, now known as the 'Socialist Eton'. His work has won many awards from organisations across the world, including the Association of Photographers and the Royal Photographic Society in the UK, EPICA in France, Applied Arts Magazine in Canada, and Graphis Inc. in the USA . Dazeley is one of the few modern photographers whose fine art work is produced as platinum prints. Dazeley became a member of the Association of Photographers in 1977 and became a life member in 1984. In June 2013 he was awarded a Fellowship by the Royal Photographic Society. Fellowship is the highest distinction of the RPS and recognizes original work and outstanding ability. He is the photographer of Unseen London (Frances Lincoln, 2014).
