Daily Telegraph: "Dark city: atmospheric photographs of London streets by night in the 1930s"
Link to web site
"This picture gallery features atmospheric images of London streets in the 1930s, before the Blitz, before the Clean Air Act, before sodium lighting.
"It was a city of gloomy back streets lit by dim lamps, with forbidding alleys and the occasional welcoming light.
"The photographs are from a book called 'London Night', by John Morrison and Harold Burdekin, which was published in 1934. They were recently posted on The Library Time Machine, a fascinating blog run by the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea Library Service."
