Haunted London
by

Publisher: Chatto & Windus, Piccadilly
ISBN/ASIN: B00AKY6MHQ
Number of pages: 499

Description:
This book deals less with the London of the ghost-stories, the scratching impostor in Cock Lane, or the apparition of Parson Ford at the Hummums, than with the London consecrated by manifold traditions -- a city every street and alley of which teems with interesting associations, every paving-stone of which marks, as it were, the abiding-place of some ancient legend or biographical story; in short, this London of the present haunted by the memories of the past.
