The Capital Companion – Peter Gibson – Web & Bower

Thanks to David Watson again for passing on another good book about London. This one is sort of loosely related to the blue plaques of London and has the entries in alphabetical name/street order. There’s loads of stuff I’ve never heard of in here like did you know Hogarth was only 5 foot tall? A book to search out for in the library if you love London’s history, daft or serious. P
