London’s belle époque was marked with the introduction of the first motorised buses, which replaced the horse-drawn versions that had plodded their trade since 1829, and a touch of glamour came in the form of luxury hotels such as the Ritz in 1906 and department stores such as Selfridges in 1909. The Olympics were held at White City Stadium in 1908 – a rather different spectacle to those planned for just over a century later. The stadium was demolished in 1985 to make way for a new British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) building.
