I’ve been writing about the city for over forty years. I am a passionate observer and chronicler of London’s past.

Professor Jerry White ​

Meet Jerry White


British historian & chronicler

To experience London is to experience its history, and though the big events matter, the history of any country is first and foremost determined by its people. That’s where Professor Jerry White comes in. A scholar on the history of the city and its people, with a trilogy of books that document life in London between 1700 and 2000. Meeting with him, we fell in love with his absolute fascination with the little detail of how people used to live in the centuries gone by, and how as a population, the inhabitants of the English capital have embraced the 21st century.
