'This is a book about people - London people - and the way they behave... The row of Kensington nannies that I photographed in the park, and the lunchtime striptease audience in the Canning Town pub, would probably find each other fairly surprising.'

This is Antony Armstrong Jones's (later Lord Snowdon) first photograhy book, published when he was just 28 years old and two years before his marriage to Princess Margaret. Snowdon's focus was on the people of London going about their everyday business. In his photographs he captures the fleeting moment and reveals the humour and idiosyncrasies of London life. Chapter headings include 'Going', 'Waiting', 'Adorning', 'Judging', 'Reading', 'Posing', 'Dancing' and 'Loving'. The book was designed by Mark Boxer.
