    simultaneously point backwarde and forwards

    Dear all,

    ...If London at mid-century simultaneously pointed backwards and forwards, it was a city of contrasts, and these contrasts fascinated visiting photographers, who took opportunities to present the opposits that made London the city it was...

    In the sentence above, what does "London at mid-century simultaneously pointed backwards and forwards"?

    Does it mean, "If someone at mid-century looked at the future London and the past London simultaneously"?

    But I don't know why London is the subject in the original sentence.

    Thank you

    OP

    Re: simultaneously point backwarde and forwards

    London in the middle of the century was a city where signs of its past and of its (possible?) future were evident.
