Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Journey back to Victorian London via this superbly illustrated handbook, first published in 1862. Originally meant as a guide for visitors, it's now reformatted to preserve the book's historical value, and includes beautiful engravings of London attractions, an overview of the city, and information on London theaters, hackney carriages, omnibuses, churches, and even banks. The main body of the book focuses on a series of walking tours, and some of the advice on coping with London smog, avoiding pickpockets, and more is as useful today as it was back then!
