A London Year

£6.99

Sorry, this item is now out of stock.

An anthology of 'intimate snatches of London life', with one or more entries for each day of the year, this handsome volume begins with a hungover Robert Hooke on 1 January 1672; in June we find Nöel Coward detesting the 1951 Festival of Britain funfair ('really the last word in squalor and completely ungay'); and, finally, there is a millennial disappointment – MP Oona King on New Year's Eve 1999, stuck at Stratford Tube station en route to the Millennium Dome festivities.
