1894 was an exciting year in the literary history of London with the publication of the Jungle Book and the first issue of the Yellow Book (to say the least). That year also saw the first attempt at an international terrorist attack with the botched bombing of the Royal Observatory
. Luckily, street photography continues to be popular, thanks to the wacky cameras
that were increasingly available. I found many of these street photos in the Descriptive Album of London, 1894
, to which I've provided links to George Birch's detailed descriptions (very much worth reading).

I'm not actually certain where this photo was taken,
but it was too cool to pass up!
