London’s Secret History, by Peter Bushell
London’s Secret History
The author has taken the metropolis area by area and treats us to some of the hilarious, bizarre and macabre events which have taken place there: the king’s mistress who sprinkled the new queen’s honeymoon breakfast with Epsom salts; the marquis who liked his kippers boiled in gin; the lady who awoke to find her sleepwalking butler had laid the table for fourteen on her bed, and more.
