I have restored a photo from 1902 for your picture printing pleasures. This is a photo of [A highway of London, Regent St. ca. 1902.] Photograph.
The Picture was in rough condition and was a Stereograph picture. I took the best half and created a worthy picture to hang in your home or office.
You can see and get prints of the original at the bottom of the page. I try to keep as much of the original photo intact that I can when I restore a digital photo. I just remove as much of the scratches and blemishes that I see. I will later color or clean up and make other options for the prints.
About Regent Street
Regent Street is a major shopping street in the West End of London. It is named after George, the Prince Regent (later George IV) and was laid out under the direction of the architect John Nash and James Burton. It runs from Waterloo Place in St James's at the southern end, through Piccadilly Circus and Oxford Circus, to All Souls Church. From there Langham Place and Portland Place continue the route to Regent's Park.
The street's layout was completed in 1825 and was an early example of town planning in England, replacing earlier roads including Swallow Street. Nash and Burton's street layout has survived, although all the original buildings except All Souls Church have been replaced following reconstruction in the late 19th century. The street is known for its flagship retail stores, including Liberty, Hamleys, Jaeger and the Apple Store. The Royal Polytechnic Institution, now the University of Westminster, has been based on Regent Street since 1838.
