Description - The A-Z of Curious London by Gilly Pickup

Spooky, gruesome, weird but true things about one of the world's greatest cities come alive in 'The A-Z of Curious London'. Discover London's tiniest house, a 4,000-year-old mouse made from Nile clay, and have a giggle at things people leave on London's transport (including false teeth, a human skull and a park bench - yes, really.) Why did a dentist keep his dead wife on view in a shop window? Where did a shopkeeper murder 150 customers? Which Queen showed her bosom to an Ambassador? Why was a man arrested for wearing a top hat? In the City proper, why is no thoroughfare called a road? To sum up, eccentrics, legends, folklore, murders, scandals, ghosts, incredible characters and oodles of wow factor, it's all here.

Buy The A-Z of Curious London by Gilly Pickup from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
