About The Book

Delve into the rich histories of these remarkable cities and witness their transformation over the years.

Set out on a journey to visit 25 of the world’s most iconic cities in this visual guide that includes more than 200 photographs of the buildings and landmarks that define these urban landscapes. Archival photographs are presented side by side with modern views to show change through the course of history. Cities Past and Present enables readers to understand these changes, from the rebirth of San Francisco after the 1906 earthquake to the transformation and preservation of cities such as London, Paris, and Shanghai. Through these images, you’ll witness the evolution of famous cities and gain a new understanding of their place in world history. A lenticular cover with archival and modern photographs of the Eiffel Tower offers readers a preview of what’s inside.
