Product description

Review

A highly readable account of nineteenth-century London... Picard's book is a mine of information told with great enthusiasm and passion. - EXPRESS (7/7/06)

This is a comprehensive history by anecdote, so the enlightening facts come thick and fast... Picard enforces the idea that history really is all around us. - TELEGRAPH (8/7/06)

Her survey of Victorian London is as enjoyably wide-ranging as her previous volumes, and her curiosity about apparent trivia resurrects the realities of the past more successfully than many more solemn works of social and political analysis do. - SUNDAY TIMES (30/7/06)

Book Description

From rag-gatherers to royalty, from fish knives to Freemasons: everyday life in Victorian London.
