Summary
'London was but is no more!' In these words diarist John Evelyn summed up the destruction wreaked by the Great Fire that swept through the City of London in 1666. The losses included St Paul's Cathedral and 87 parish churches (as well as at least 13,000 houses). In After the Fire, celebrated photographer and architectural historian Angelo Hornak explores, with the help of his own stunning photographs, the churches built in London during the 60 years that followed the Great Fire, as London rose from the ashes, more beautiful - and certainly more spectacular - than ever before
