The seven noses of Soho :
and 191 other curious details from the streets of London /
|Main Creator:||Manners, Jamie.|
Among the great cities of the world, London's inimitable character is striking. Unconstrained by style and strict planning it has thrived, with each generation adding new chapters and details to its history. In an age when the city's skyscrapers are getting taller and taller, it can be truly rewarding to go in pursuit of the small stuff. While the masses crowd around icons such as St Paul's and the Tower of London, there are other layers of London which are often overlooked. Investigate that blue plaque across the road and you may well find that one of your heroes lived there. Look up at the menacing gargoyles overhead and uncover tales of revenge. Discover the bizarre swirly church window on Trafalgar Square, or the V2 rocket standing near London Bridge. The Seven Noses of Soho is a fascinating guide to London as you've never seen it before.
