    Event description:
    Hundreds of thousands of faces - images of born Londoners and more transient visitors - are preserved forever in our archive collections. From Lord Mayors to chimney sweeps, waitresses to wrestlers, London has increasingly been a magnet for those looking for work. Some jobs appear strangely familiar, miraculously little changed across more than five centuries, while others are more or less a mystery to all except their practitioners. Images of working Londoners capture the strangeness and the familiarity, the toil, flair and sheer vitality of work in London. Winners, losers, the famous or the forgotten, countless Londoners have been recorded as they went about their daily work in the capital. From fifteenth century drawings to colour photographs, the archive brings them all together and presents them as the history of our capital city.
