    Product description
    This booklet provides an insight into the rich history of Covent Garden, one of London’s most interesting and vibrant areas, from Saxon times to the modern day. The history of the area’s market, churches, theatres, coffee houses and hotels are explored with colour images. The book also touches on the decline of Covent Garden in the 18th and 19th centuries into an area known for its slums, poor and prostitutes. This short but well-researched publication is packed with images and illustrations and will encourage you to delve further into this rich seam of the city’s history.
