Very interesting in to the history of London, dispells some stories about events. Very easy to get to grips with the sites of the old buildings and institutes that no longer exist.

An excellent book as a reference but it lacked 2 important things:
1. No maps. Very important to make sense of the detailed descriptions.

2.The date of publication. I spent a great deal of time trying to work out the historical perspective of the writer.Eventually I deduced that it must have been 1888. This had a significant importance in understanding some of his comments.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential free book 31 Mar. 2014

For a free title this is very good indeed. For a history book it is also not too heavy going and is written in clear English that most people will be comfortable with.
