Famed for his railway hand-books - recently rediscovered through Michael Portillo's television series on the great railway journeys - George Bradshaw also produced this Hand Book to London, which was originally published in 1862. Presented as a series of walks within central London, as well as a trip along the Thames by steamer and a visit to the Crystal Palace at Sydenham, it provides a unique perspective on the city as it was 150 years ago. This new edition presents Bradshaw's Hand Book to London in a highly readable form, accompanied by a wealth of contemporary images to bring the text to life. It is packed with fascinating information and armed with this guide, which includes contemporary maps, the modern explorer can retrace Bradshaw's steps to discover the Victorian world amid today's busy city.
