Über diesen Titel
Like the East End, the West End has a strong and memorable identity. There are few more visited areas in Britain. It is a vigorous place, laden with wealth, excitement and prestige. Its history, which "West End Chronicles" will detail, is captivating and eternally fascinating. Its story begins in the early years after the Fire of London when the rich and powerful looked west to the fields that covered what are now Soho, Mayfair, Larylebone and Fitzrovia to extend the capital. While Mayfair and Marylebone remained mostly exclusive, Soho and Fitzroiva acquired a range of characteristics typical of the capital, with slums and crime alongside comfort zones.About the Author:
Ed Glinert was born in Dalston, east London. he is the author of The Literary Guide to London and The London Compendium and leads a variety of walking tours around London. His fascination with people and place, the bizarre and the arcane, coupled with his forensic gift for digging out obscure stoires, is perfectly suited to this uniquely intriguing place.
