First published in 1953—the year that saw uncounted thousands of Britons descend on London to watch the coronation of Queen Elizabeth—this vintage lexicon of the city's curiosities ranges from the Achilles statue in Hyde Park ("erected by the women of England to honor—if not to resemble—the Duke of Wellington") to surveys of greyhound racing, lost property offices, umbrellas, and even zebra crossings.
