Full Description

An authoritative and richly illustrated investigation into Britain's most famous shopping street

Oxford Street is among the world's great shopping streets, renowned for its department stores and the vitality of its crowded sidewalks. As a thoroughfare, Oxford Street goes back to Roman times. It was formerly known under the earlier name of Tyburn Road and was notorious as the route of the condemned to the gallows near the site of the present Marble Arch. This exceptional book is the latest in the famous Survey of London series, and the first to focus on a single street. It offers new insights into the growth of shops and shopping in the British capital, as well as a wealth of data, photographs, and drawings illuminating the buildings and activities that have given Oxford Street character. Written in the accessible prose that is a hallmark of the Survey of London, it is handsomely designed in the Survey's house style and illustrated with 385 photographs and drawings with most previously unpublished.
