Synopsis

London has for centuries been a favourite destination for tourists, travellers and those seeking to change their fortunes; people from all walks of life have wandered its streets and called it home, and it lays claim to both stylish modernity and breathtaking heritage. This pocket guide to the capital, published in 1905, reveals all facets of Edwardian London and affords a glimpse of its inhabitants' daily routine: school, taverns, circulating libraries and omnibus routes. For the sightseer, it locates and describes the celebrated royal palaces, historic monuments, theatres and museum - the spontaneous might be tempted by the prospect of procuring a marriage license, or perhaps even a pet tiger in the notoriously iniquitous Ratcliffe Highway. Complete with maps and contemporary advertising, the ABC Guide to London captures the spirit of a city cheerfully "pressing forwards, fighting for the future", and as yet untouched by the turmoil of world war.
