London History Collection - 3 Books (book)


Making use of every possible contemporary source - diaries, memoirs, advice books, government papers, even the Register of Patents, Liza Picard presents an enthralling picture of how life in London was really lived: the houses and streets; gardens and parks; medicine and dentistry... there is almost no aspect of life in London that is not meticulously described. With a keen eye for human quirks, and a constant wry humour, Liza Picard has painted a glorious portrait. [1]
