As C20's 'unofficial photographer' John East would usually kick off the New Year with a review of C20 events from the previous year. But this year would have made for a very short presentation.

Instead, John got on his bike during the spring and autumn lockdowns and revisited buildings which he first got to know with the Society (and its forerunner, the Thirties Society) many years ago and took spectacular images of London's inter-war architecture.

If the 1920s were the Hors d'oeuvre, then the 1930s is the main course as many of the styles which had their seed in the 20s magnificently flowered in the decade before the War. New styles and forms of architecture emerged, whilst over a decade after Le Corbusier's Vers Une Architecture, international modernism at last made an appearance in the capital.

As with the first show, we will see well known buildings as well as those you might not have come across and some of the best interiors of that decade.

We will also look at the fate of some of those buildings in the intervening years since the Thirties Society first brought them to wider attention, many of which have become casework and continue to be casework, with both positive and less positive results.

Cost: £5
