The A-Z of Curious London

Cover: 'The A-Z of Curious London'

Staff Review: "The A-Z of Curious London" by Gilly Pickup

★★★★

One of the most fascinating cities in the world, London has had its share of 'oddball history' as revealed in Gilly Pickup's charming, informative book. Here can be found details on the dentist who kept his dead wife on view in a shop window, London's oldest restaurant, the ghosts of Ham House, Sweeney Todd's evil doings, the smallest police station in the UK, Newgate's Black Dog and other stories of 'the good old city.' Pickup's book is fun reading and catnip for Londonphiles.
