Product description


Imaginatively insane * * Sunday Herald * * Impossible to put down. * * Independent on Sunday * * This is the sort of book for which the word quirky was coined. * * Sunday Herald * *


Why did London Underground once employed a one-legged man to ride up and down the escalators at Earl's Court tube station? What did Hitler plan to do with Nelson's Column? Why is London's only medieval mummy a prostitute named Clarice la Claterballock? How did a beer flood in Tottenham Court Road drown nine people? Where can you see a pair of Queen Victoria's knickers? Containing chapters covering London past and present; buildings and streets; famous and unexpected Londoners; arts, literature and crime; plus much much more, the 180 lists will amaze, amuse and inform. More than simply a keepsake for tourists - every self-respecting Londoner needs this book. "If you do not want to live among wicked people, do not live in London." - Richard of Devizes, 1192 (Benedictine monk and chronicler).
