This London Connection etching portrays the development of the modern metropolis. Split into three sections, the 

left-handpanel represents the early 20th century, travel and links to North America. The middle section concentrates on the

lifeblood, the heartbeat of the metropolis based on Britain's imperial past. Everything in this section is for display - a false

paradise where the past is brought to life as a theme park. The right-hand panel represents the modern vision of the

metropolis and Britain's wider role in the contemporary world, now symbolised by it's links to Europe.
