One of Brandt's key books and his scarcest title, published simultaneously in French as Londres de Nuit, both printed with bilingual captions. Several publisher's warehouses were hit during the Blitz, including those of Country Life, which were severely damaged in 1939. The narrative begins at dusk and finishes at dawn with milk and newspapers left on the doorstep. As with his first book, The English at Home (1936), Brandt staged some pictures using a cast of friends and family.
