LONDON IN THOSE DAYS -- Candid cameras capture street life in London over 150 years ago. A magazine seller at Ludgate Circus in 1893 is seen here after being covertly snapped by Paul Martin, the first photographer to use a hidden camera in an attempt to record life in London "as it is". Visitors to the Museum of London are being given the chance to view life on the capital's streets over the last 150 years in a photo exhibition.
