Christmas comes early,
This review is from: Lost London (Hardcover)
An early problem solver of what to get the family for Christmas. Not only is Guard's book packed with fascinating details and stories about old London town, it'll be a great source for the Boxing Day quiz. Who wouldn't have loved to sup in Fleet Street's The Devil Public House where 'insipid poetry' was forbidden or visited the Diorama in Camden with its trompe l'oeils operated by a lad with a ram engine? This is a London to be cherished and explored.
