Lost London: how the Thames has changed in 150 years

From the MailOnline, a "remarkable series of pictures shows just how much life has changed in the streets of London surrounding the River Thames in the last 150 years.
A unique series of photographs taken in the 1860s, using an early type of camera, showcase life in Victorian London for those living in the thriving and bustling streets next to the river.
Landmarks Battersea Bridge, Cheyne Walk and Chelsea Physic Garden are easily spotted in the series of eight frames, set to go under the hammer at auction later this month, valued at around £500."
