Brown, Vanessa; Dickson, Jason. London: 150 Cultural Moments. Windsor, Ontario: Biblioasis, 2017. 205 pp. 4to. Many b&w illustrations. New. Soft cover.
From the introduction: "We celebrate London with both irony and glee. We embrace its unexpected and curious successes while marvelling that both great small things happen here. If you draw a circle around any community on a map--intentionally or randomly--we suspect that digging would reveal a similarly bizarre mix of interesting, ordinary, or strange stories that our choice of London has revealed to us. Those are other cities and other places. This one is important because it is ours."
