Synopsis: Like it's predecessor (LOST LONDON), PANORAMAS OF LOST LONDON reproduces historic photographs commissioned by the London City Council - many of them in the early days of photography - to capture individual buildings and streets in close focus but in a landscape-format book.
About the Author: As a chartered town planner, historian and international expert in heritage conservation, Philip Davies has been in the forefront of managing change to London's most important historic buildings and places for over 40 years. At English Heritage as the Planning and Development Director for London and South - East England some of Britain's most important historic buildings and places have benefited from Philip's watchful eye, including Trafalgar Square, Whitehall, Hyde Park Corner, Kings Cross/St Pancras, the British Museum, Woolwich Arsenal and Bletchley Park, as well as across the government estate and occupied royal palaces. He has prepared national policy and guidance on a whole range of topics from tall buildings to conservation-led regeneration. Philip devised and set up English Heritage's Buildings at Risk programme in London and as a result over 2,000 listed buildings have been saved from dereliction. He also conceived and led the Campaign for London's Squares, which has seen over 20 of London's most important squares restored to their original splendour. English Heritage's Streets for All project was pioneered by Philip to transform the public realm across the country. He was also responsible for developing English Heritage's Heritage Economic Regeneration Schemes and War Memorials grant schemes. In addition to his status as an expert on London's heritage, history and development, Philip is an internationally-renowned authority on British Imperial history and has provided advice and guidance to the governments of India, Brazil, Myanmar, Australia and New Zealand. Philip's other books include Lost London 1870-1945, London Hidden Interiors, Lost England 1870-1930, Splendours of the Raj - British Architecture in India - 1660-1947, which was selected by The Times critics as a book of the year, and The Penguin Guide to the Monuments of India - Islamic, Rajput and European, the most comprehensive guide to India's architecture and buildings ever written.
