Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
The arrival of photography in London in 1839 would change the way people saw their city, and each other, forever and the collections at LMA contain an extraordinary range of images, recording the capital and its people in stunning detail.
This exhibition presents some of the most striking images of London and Londoners from the era, from the first known photograph of the capital to the opening of Blackwall Tunnel, taking in the Crystal Palace, the first Tube line and life on the city’s streets.
