From Palace to Power

An Illustrated History of Whitehall

Author Text to Follow

“No street in the world can have bred more triumph and more blood than Whitehall. Its brief half mile embodies the power of empire. The power may have declined, but the architecture that was its physical expression survives. The buildings stand today as they did at the height of empire. If ever a landscape was a mirror of history, it is here in the heart of Westminster.”
From the Foreword by Simon Jenkins, The Times

Probably THE book on Whitehall… Despite the numerous historians during its long history, Whitehall has never been the subject of a work quite like this. Indeed, the format and structure of the book set an admirable example for dealing with other areas of important national significance.
