The Moods of London

Over the centuries, diarists have chronicled London in both triumph and disaster, recording the great events and the everyday. They have captured the City in all its aspects and all its moods. We will take an illustrated look at various moods of London as seen through the eyes of diarists both the famous and the hitherto unknown.
