about the project
This project reproduces A second look - a photographic record of a walk through Hackney in 1890’s and now.
The book is reproduced in it's entirety with every spread matched
by a contemporary view of the same spot from Google street view
(or a satellite view if that was not available).
Many thanks go to The Centerprise Trust who published the orignal book in 1975
and gave us a kind permission to use it for this website.
