Quite by accident, I happened across a wonderful London blog the other evening. It’s not especially historical, though there is a lot of history content. What marks this blog out is the wonderful photography coupled with quality writing – elegant, even. It’s run by photographer Stephanie Wolff and it’s called London-In-Sight. Another great find this week, a blog which focuses on 20th Century London history: Another Nickel in the Machine.
