The South London district of Greenwich is perhaps most famous for giving its name to Greenwich Mean Time and the Greenwich Meridian, but the area is also a World Heritage Site with many famous landmarks including the National Maritime Museum, the Royal Observatory and the Cutty Sark.

This fascinating collection of old photographs, shown alongside today’s equivalent views, show the many fascinating changes which Greenwich has undergone. From the amalgamation of separate communities into the metropolis to the heavy bombing of the Second World War and subsequent redevelopment, Greenwich Then & Now illustrates what Greenwich has lost and what it has gained along the way.
