This talk will start by reviewing the massive growth of London, the increasing importance of its outer ring, and the transformations in its character brought by revolutions in transport: the completion of a suburban railway network, deep-level tubes, electric trams, and the advent of the motor car and bus.

It will go on to review the replanning schemes for the centre: The Mall, the rebuilding of Regent Street, the Kingsway-Aldwych scheme, and the increasingly sophisticated architectural legacy of what is often known as ‘Imperial London’.
