  1. Excellent London Guide

    Posted by Unknown on 22nd Jul 2019

    Wonderful book to dip into as well as consult for information. Well written with clear information on many locations and streets as well as a fund of historical detail. Highly recommended - it sits on the dinner table for occasional random dips! The only limitation I have found so far is that it does not list the street where my mother-in-law was born and which lo longer exists.
