Product Overview

This attractive, handy pocket book answers all those burning questions about London. "Who sold Buckingham Palace to an American tourist? Whose head fell off London Bridge into his daughter''s lap? How do you make Big Ben gain two-fifths of a second? Why did John Etherington''s top hat get him arrested in Mayfair in 1797? Which Londoner embalmed his wife and displayed her in a glass cabinet in his front room? What does Tony Blair mean in Cockney rhyming slang? And how many policemen can you fit in Nelson''s Column?" As the saying goes, "There is in London all that life can afford." And most of it is in this book.
