Description: Love, famous musicians, kidnapping, and embezzlement -- these are just a few of the themes readers will uncover when they dip into the stories in this engaging new book about London's past.
Most Londoners know that Guy Lombardo Avenue was named after Guy Lombardo, the famous big band leader and native son, but they seldom know about the people who gave their names to Holman, Cronyn, or McCormick Streets. Street names are a living record of a community's history. When readers learn something about the name of a street, they often learn something new about the place where they live as well.
London Street Names includes more than 100 thoroughfares in the city. Each alphabetically organized entry has something interesting to say about the city's social, political, cultural or military history. Richly illustrated in colour and black-and-white with modern and archival photographs, this book offers a fascinating window onto the history of London.[more]
