The Foreigner’s Guide to London and Westminster. In English on the left-hand page and French on the right, this guide takes a visitor and companion on a bi-lingual tour through London and Westminster at a time when the Thames “added greatly to the health and pleasure of the inhabitants of this Metropolis. When Ranelagh Gardens in Chelsea were not so beautiful as those at Vauxhall. Islington was a pleasant village and Hackney a place of great extent including twelve hamlets. ..Many of the wealthy citizens of London have built fine houses here. A fascinating walk into the history of the cities.”
