The A to Z of Victorian London 1888
Hyde, R. The A to Z of Victorian London. London, 1987.140 pages. Cloth, jacket. Without an A to Z most people, even Cockneys – can get lost in London. The A to Z of Victorian London will enable its purchasers to find their way around the streets of London as it was one hundred years ago. The atlas consists of 59 map sheets from Bacon’s New Large-Scale Ordnance Atlas of London & Suburbs, which appeared in 1888. The index allows users of the A to Z to find any street, road, lane, wharf, square or public building. The area covered reaches to Mill Hill to the north, Chislehurst and New Bromley to the south, Abbey Wood to the east, and Southall to the west, thus taking in the greater part of today’s suburbia. Useful details include banks, theatres, insurance houses, statues and named terraces.
