How did Big Ben get its name? And how is a London Street different from a Road?

Two surgeons who have spent all their working lives in London present nearly one hundred different impressions of people, places and events which help give London its unique and sometimes eccentric flavour. Written affectionately with wit, wisdom and humour, and illustrated lavishly throughout with superb pen-and-ink drawings, this is a book for anyone who is curious about London to enjoy.
