Does what it says on the tin.

This is a curious little book. It contains a selection of places and things around London that are no longer there - exactly as you would expect from the title.
Why, then, did it not grab me at all? I'm not sure, but I think it is too brief to be entertaining. Each section tends to be very short, with a few bare facts, but little background. It is a bit like a guidebook, but for things that you cannot visit.
In the end, I cannot decide who this book is aimed at, but it's not me!
