In Search Of London by H.V. Morton
H.V. Morton was one of the great travel writers, acknowledged by, among others, Bill Bryson. In Search of London is one of his best and what is particularly fascinating is the period Morton writes about – 5 years after World War II. It’s a London hugely damaged by the Blitz and struggling to recover, and for those with better knowledge of London than myself, it must be particularly interesting to compare his descriptions of particular bomb damaged locations with the same scene today.
