First published in 1938, this charming book introduces the British high street. Shops include the family butcher, the cheesemonger, the baker and confectioner and the oyster bar, as well as specialized establishments such as the plumassier, the clerical outfitter and the submarine engineer. Only 2,000 copies of the original book were printed before the lithographic plates were destroyed in the London Blitz. This beautiful facsimile edition features all 24 of Ravilious's colour illustrations alongside fascinating text by architectural historian J. M. Richards and includes an essay by Gill Saunders, Senior Curator of Prints at the V&A, that sets the book in its historical context.
