Beschreibung:

London's suburbs may stretch for well over 600 square miles, but in historical accounts of the capital they tend to take something of a back seat. In this title, the author traces their journey from hamlets and villages far out in the open countryside to fully fledged urban enclaves.
London's suburbs may stretch for well over 600 square miles, but in historical accounts of the capital they tend to take something of a back seat. He describes the spread of the first suburbs beyond the city walls, and traces the ebb and flow of population as people moved in to find jobs or away to escape London's noise and bustle.
