A journey through London in lockdown, looking at the history behind the scenes and associations with previous calamities such as The Great Plague and The Great Fire.

In March 2020, London, along with the rest of Britain, entered a lockdown designed to protect the community against the Covid-19 virus. The teeming metropolis became devoid of people and traffic; places normally crowded with people were suddenly empty. In this book author David C. Ramzan explores how London changed in this period through the evolving measures in the pandemic from 2020, and gives the history behind the scenes he captures, covering topics such as the Black Death, Great Fire of London, the Second World War and the Blitz.

London in Lockdown is a poignant reminder of the devastating changes to people’s lives in the capital during this period.
