An Engineer's youth,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: London and Londoners in the 1850s & 1860s (Victorian London Ebooks Book 2) (Kindle Edition)
This is a most fascinating book. Written by an engineer with an interest in steam engines, ships, telephones and more. A personal delight in the London of his youth gives a more vivid account than a professional writer or historian could achieve. This is a book I shall re-read many times.
