Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0712358145, Hardcover)
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 book London 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.
