London in the 18th century was a city of dramatic contrasts, between rich and poor, new money and old, continuity and rapid change. Much of the old city was still a maze of courts and alleyways, but a walk along the Strand towards the West End would have passed elegant riverside palaces through pockets of extreme poverty, to the spacious new developments to the east of Hyde Park. This book takes the reader on an historical tour through the capital as it was during the 1700s.
