Historic buildings, museums, street plans and photographs make up one of the most detailed guides of London ever published. Perfect for the contemporary time-traveler, the guide covers religion, history, antiquities, literary associations and presents entertaining "footpath rambles of the neighborhoods." Released in 1947 by The Homeland Association (founded in 1896), the guide is an amazing love letter to the city of London and Great Britain.
London's many cemeteries, churches and graveyards are the last resting places of a multitude of important people from many different walks of life. Politicians, writers and military heroes rub shoulders with engineers, courtesans, artists and musicians, along with quite a few eccentric characters. Arranged geographically, this comprehensive guide describes famous graves in all the major cemeteries and churches in Greater London, including Highgate, Kensal Green, Westminster Abbey, and St Paul's Cathedral, as well as the City churches and many suburban parish churches. The book gives biographical details, information on the monuments, and is richly illustrated. As well as being an historical guide, it also serves as an indispensable reference guide for any budding tombstone tourist.
