Taking a sideways look at London, David Long reveals the hidden stories and curious histories behind dozens of often quite familiar places. His book is arranged by themes such as Death, Religion, Establishment, Power and Transport, and whether descending into disused tunnels under the city streets, describing a 'psychogeographer's dream dwelling' (Canonbury Tower) or finding the last surviving streetlamp powered by sewer gas, Long provides engrossing details of London's strangest places - and the people responsible for them.
