Upon the broad Embankment You'll find a curious sight, The children play around it From morning until night; And crowds of grown-up people Come here to see it too, 'Tis Cleopatra's Needle Folks gather thus to view. In this charming facsimile of the children's bookLondon Town, first published in 1883, a young girl travels around London, encountering and appreciating many of the familiar sights and figures of London, including the Tower of London, the British Museum, Westminster Abbey, and a Beefeater. On her travels she also interacts with many less familiar, but equally intriguing figures, like the muffin man, the Shoeblack brigade, and Orange Girl. Written in verse by Felix Leigh, this book captures the sites and sounds of Victorian London, some still present today, others long forgotten. Beautifully illustrated by distinguished Victorian illustrators Thomas Crane and Ellen Houghton,LondonTownwill be a treasured gift for London travelers and admirers young and old.
