The London Companion
Anova Books, 2004 - Travel - 153 pages
If you think that London is the greatest city in the world but could do with some evidence to back you up, this is the book you need. Within these pages are hundreds of facts, figures, stories, quotes, jokes and extraordinary anecdotes about London from its earliest times, when hippos swam up the Thames and elephants lived in Trafalgar Square, right up to the present day. You will learn essential information such as who took a binbag full of body parts to Shepherd’s Bush by taxi, what goes on at the Horseshoe and Faggott Cutting Ceremony, who was paid £3 a yard to paint the ceiling of the Royal Naval College, and who keeps a Northern Line tube train in his back garden. As the saying goes, ‘There is in London all that life can afford.’ And most of it is in this book.

Brilliant little companion book for those interested in London -- travelers, students, historians, writers, architects, and the simply curious. You're bound to find at least one fascinating tidbit. I especially enjoyed the creative use of page numbers as "by the numbers" facts. Read full review
