is an online image database from the collections of the City of London Libraries and the Guildhall Art Gallery. Images cover the last five centuries. You can search by key word or browse by theme, artist/engraver, person or place.
Some random pictures I liked: the Duchess of Devonshire canvassing
, 1784; the interior of St Bride's, Fleet Street
, 1830 (the inside of the church was destroyed by bombing in the Second World War, so it's interesting to compare the restored church with the picture); and A Merry Christmas and Happy New Year in London
There're also some Virtual Exhibitions
- "The London that never was" is particularly interesting.
If you want to visit the Guildhall Art Gallery itself, entrance is free on Fridays.
