London: Power, Progress and Pleasure

22 June – 19 Sep 2015
Admission: Free
Location: Senate House Library

Feed your curiosity for the capital at our exhibition, which encourages visitors to ask questions about the city, from how to navigate it to who holds power and, lastly, how to enjoy oneself. As part of the 2015 Annual Conference of LIBER, the Association of European Research Libraries, Senate House Library will be exhibiting items from its own collections, and from LSE Library and UCL Library, covering the subjects of travel, the river, democracy, protest and pleasure, with well-known and less familiar images of the metropolis.
