London is forever reinventing itself, and buildings and customs that once seemed permanent landmarks are now forgotten curios. Every page of this engrossing book brings to light some fascinating facet of history, from the Jacobean New Exchange that once stood on the Strand to the 'Charleys' who once patrolled the city streets. More than 400 alphabetical entries, illustrated with historic images, bring to life a lost world of coffee-houses and gin palaces, pillories and prefabs, sedan chairs and soup kitchens.
