The end of World War I changed London. In the age of changing transport, new roads and railways extending the capital out into the suburbs, as well as the new entertainment medium of the wireless, a 'modern' city began to emerge: red phone boxes and an automatic telephone system were introduced. The first schematic Tube map was designed by Harry Beck. London's creative industries expanded. It was still the centre of the empire, the hub of a trading and communications network that stretched round the globe. We also look at the wonderful artists of the second world war, and the excitement of the new world of the Festival of Britain.  It is against this backdrop that we will explore the life of London through its artists and craftsmen in the first half of the 20th century.
