Curiosities in LondonLondon Peculiars: Curiosities in a Capital City London is a city that continually changes to suit the age; an ever changing backdrop to what has survived from over the centuries. We are always conscious of the show piece buildings, but London can never quite shake off the smaller details, the disregarded curiosities that connect us to a past that never goes away. London Peculiars goes in search of the strange, the unexpected and the downright odd: dinosaurs in Sydenham, stage-set housefronts in Bayswater, a funeral railway in Waterloo. Architecture that moves considerable distances, architecture that hides other purposes. The weird, the mysterious, the preposterous; this book is a manual for anyone wanting to scratch away at London's surface gloss, for everyone who looks beyond the immediate and obvious. Through a succession of atmospheric photographs and text, this fascinating book will send the reader on an enchanting journey of discovery through London's alternative histories.
