KIRKUS REVIEW

Three volumes, previously published in England, are included in this single volume, -- Heart of London, Ghosts of London, etc. Now, in the belief that the old London has gone, never to return, and that it will live in memory of those who knew and loved it, Morton is giving his American public his written memories, vignettes, the human side of the London caught in the streets, the churches, the markets, on buses, trains, and subways, in museums, inns and bars. There are glimpses of slums -- and of Mayfair. There are facets of London rarely seen by the visitor, known only to the intimate lover of the city. An introductory section gives a glimpse of London today, kept alive in the spirit of the people.
