£6.99

Available in 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 Noel 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.
