Excerpt

This book is a companion to A Wanderer in London, published in 1906, and supplements it. New editions, bringing that work to date, will, I hope, continue to appear.

More Wanderings in London contains certain matter of interest omitted from the earlier book, such as descriptions of some minor museums, or touched there too lightly, and extends the range to Hampton Court. It also gives complete lists of the open-air statues of London and of those houses that are marked with tablets.

Mr. Livens would have made, among other pictures not here, a drawing of the new Admiralty Arch, had not this been forbidden, during war time, by the authorities.

The end papers are a portion of an ingenious poster designed by Mr. MacDonald Gill for the Metropolitan District Railway Company, by whose courtesy it is used here.

I offer no apology for the digressive character of the pages that follow. London was made for digression.

April, 1916E. V. L.
