The Animals, made up using tube lines, stations and junctions were spotted by Paul Middlewick some 15 years ago.

The original Animal, the Elephant was discovered while Paul was staring at the tube map during his daily journey to work.

Since then, the Elephant has been joined by many other Animal friends. You can meet some of them on this site by clicking the 'animals' link. More Animals are being 'discovered' all the time If you want to know more about them and what they get up to, why not join our mailing list?

Am 10. Juli 1962 starteten die Amerikaner von Cape Canaveral in Florida aus den ersten kommerziellen (aktiven) Nachrichten- und Fernsehsatelliten "Telstar 1", der weltweite Direktübertragungen von Fernsehsendungen und Ferngesprächen möglich machte. Am 20. Juli 1962 übertrug er erstmals Fernsehbilder zwischen den USA (Bodenstation Andover) und Frankreich (Bodenstation Pleumeur-Bodou nahe der nordfranzösischen Atlantikküste).

Im selben Jahr übermittelte Telstar auch die ersten über Satellit gefunkten Telefonate über den Atlantik. Am 23. Juli 1962 ermöglichte er die erste Live-Fernsehübertragung von Kontinent zu Kontinent, d.h. den ersten Fernsehprogrammaustausch zwischen Europa und den USA: Präsident Kennedy redete die Europäer über Telstar an; der Klang von Big Ben am Schluß der Europasendung kam in den USA nicht mehr an, da Telstar noch kein geostationärer TV-Satellit war und deshalb immer wieder für die Nutzung ausfiel.

Am 13. Dezember 1962 kam zu Telstar 1 noch der Nachrichtensatellit "Relay 1" hinzu. Er übertrug von 1963 an Farbfernsehprogramme zwischen Amerika und Europa sowie Telefongespräche zwischen den USA und Brasilien.

Among the splendid cities of the world that have achieved celebrity, the city of London – seat of the English monarchy – is one whose renown is more widespread, whose money and merchandize go further afield, and which stands head and shoulders above the others. It is fortunate in the wholesomeness of its climate, the devotion of its Christians, the strength of its fortifications, its well-situated location, the respectability of its citizens, and the propriety of their wives. Furthermore it takes great pleasure in its sports and is prolific in producing men of superior quality. Each of which characteristic I shall address in turn.

congestion charge (W3)

Die Verkehrssituation in London brachte die Oberen auf die Idee, eine "Staugebühr" einzuführen. So werden auch neue Begriffe geboren.

Ansonsten wird "congestion" (= "Stau", "Verschleimung") im medizinischen Bereich im Zusammenhang mit Arterien oder Bronchien verwendet.

17. Februar 2003: Ab sofort müssen Autofahrer, wenn sie ins Zentrum von London wollen, pro Tag eine "Congestion Charge" ("Staugebühr")von fünf Pfund (knapp acht Euro) entrichten. Mit dem gewagten verkehrspolitischen Experiment, auf das andere "erstickende" Weltstädte voller Spannung blicken, soll die Sieben-Millionen-Metropole vor dem endgültigen Verkehrskollaps bewahrt werden. Mit Hilfe der Citymaut will die Stadtverwaltung den Autoverkehr ins Zentrum um 20 Prozent verringern. Zuletzt krochen die Autos dort tagsüber mit einer Durchschnittsgeschwindigkeit von nur 16 Stundenkilometern durch die Straßen.

Die Mautzone reicht im Westen vom östlichen Ende des Hyde-Parks bis zur Tower-Bridge im Osten. An jeder Einfahrt in den mautpflichtigen Stadtkern leuchtet ein roter Warnkreis mit einem weißen "C" auf dem Asphalt. Überwacht werden diese 165 "Stadttore" durch insgesamt 688 Kameras, deren Aufnahmen von einem Zentralcomputer ausgewertet werden. Bezahlen kann man per Internet, SMS, Telefon, Post oder an diversen Zahlstellen in Geschäften oder an Kiosken, Postschaltern und Tankstellen.

Von der Maut ausgenommen sind lediglich Busse und Taxis. Anwohner erhalten einen Sondertarif, die 100.000 Pendler jedoch nicht, und wer von seinem Arbeitgeber die Gebühr zurückbekommt, zahlt dafür zumindest Einkommensteuer. Zudem werden die ohnehin schon teuren Parkgebühren im "Grenzgebiet" noch einmal um 60 Prozent erhöht, damit die Pendler gar nicht erst auf die Idee kommen, erst am Rand der Sperrzone auf öffentliche Verkehrsmittel umzusteigen.

Wenn in ein, zwei Jahren die Anlaufkosten abgegolten sind, sollen 130 Millionen Pfund jährlich erwirtschaftet und in die öffentlichen Verkehrsmittel investiert werden.

The GLA is a unique form of strategic citywide government for London. It is made up of a directly elected Mayor - the Mayor of London - and a separately elected Assembly - the London Assembly. There are around 600 staff to help the Mayor and Assembly in their duties.

The Mayor is London's spokesman. He leads the preparation of statutory strategies on transport, spatial development, economic development and the environment. He sets budgets for the GLA, Transport for London, the London Development Agency, the Metropolitan Police and London's fire services.

The Assembly scrutinises the Mayor's activities, questioning the Mayor about his decisions. The Assembly is also able to investigate other issues of importance to Londoners, publish its findings and recommendations, and make proposals to the Mayor.

London Underground Logo (W3)

Das 1913 von Edward Johnston entworfene Logo der "London Underground" ähnelt der Markierung, die als Lademarke an Schiffen angebracht wurde. Der Kreis soll auch die Röhre (engl. "tube") symbolisieren, durch die die U-Bahn fährt. Auf dem Querbalken wird jeweils die U-Bahn-Sation in einer speziellen Sans-Serif-Schrift angegeben.

(E?)(L?) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/London_Underground

London Transport's roundel logo and tube map are instantly recognisable by any Londoner, almost any Briton, and many people around the world.

The logo was designed by Edward Johnston in 1913. It resembles part of the mark legally required to be painted on the sides of ships, called the Plimsoll line, a previous British invention. The logo refers to travel through a circular opening as well. Johnston also designed London Transport's distinctive sans-serif typeface in 1916. The typeface is noted for the curl at the bottom of the minuscule "l", which other sans-serif typefaces have discarded. Much of the reason for the widespread recognition of the London Transport logo is its ubiquitous usage on London Transport documents and signage. It is used for all tube station signs (where the station name appears on the horizontal bar), for example, as well as on in-carriage maps.

Since TfL took control of London's transport the roundel has been applied to other transport types within the city (bus, taxi, tram, DLR etc) in different colour pairs. The roundel has become a symbol for London itself.


London Underground Tube map (W3)

Die "London Underground Tube map" in ihrer heutigen Form wurde 1933 von Henry C. Beck, einem Angestellten von "London Transport" vorgeschlagen und entwickelt. Sein U-Bahnplan ähnelte einm Elektrischen Schaltplan.

Bis dahin bildeten die U-Bahnpläne den geographischen Verlauf der Strecken nach. Beck reduzierte die Darstellung auf waagrechte, senkrechte und im 45 Grad Winkel diagonale Linien.

Damit übertrug er die von George Dow seit 1908 praktizierte Darstellung, einer einzelnen Verbindung als gerade Strecke, auf den kompletten U-Bahnverbund.

Diese Darstellung hat allerdings auch Nachteile. Der U-Bahnplan läßt keine Rückschlüsse mehr auf die tatsächlichen Entfernungen zu.

The Tube Map as Art
The London Underground Font
Frank Pick was Chief Executive of London Transport between 1913 and 1938. He had a great interest in visual arts and commissioned both the "London Underground font" and the famous "London Underground logo".
... the font is still in wide use by designers and the London Underground logo is almost a symbol of London itself.
Pick asked the calligrapher, Edward Johnston, to design the font in 1915. In 1916 after collaboration with Eric Gill (he of "Gill Sans font" fame), the "Johnston Sans Serif font" was produced. A few minor modifications later and we have the "Johnston Underground Font" which is still used on all London Underground maps, stations, posters and materials today. The New Johnston Underground font can be downloaded, too.

Mall (W3)

Die Bezeichnung engl. "Mall" für ein - meist geschlossenes Einkaufszentrum - geht zurück auf eine Prachtstrasse in London, auf der einst ein dem Kricket ähnliches Spiel genannt "Pall Mall" gespielt wurde.

Engl. "mall" geht zurück auf engl. "mallet" = dt. "Holzhammer", "Poloschläger", "Krocketschläger" und weiter auf lat. "malleus", gen. lat. "mallei" = dt. "Hammer" (lat. "pellere malleo" = engl. "to strike with a mallet or bat").

By Mary Bellis
"The Mall"

A "shopping center", "shopping mall", or "shopping plaza", is the modern adaptation of the historical marketplace. The "mall" is a collection of independent retail stores, services, and a parking area, which is conceived, constructed, and maintained by a separate management firm as a unit. They may also contain restaurants, banks, theaters, professional offices, service stations etc.

The first "shopping mall" was the Country Club Plaza, founded by the J.C. Nichols Company and opened near Kansas City, Mo., in 1922. The first enclosed mall called Southdale opened in Edina, Minnesota (near Minneapolis) in 1956. In the 1980s, giant "megamalls" were developed. The West Edmonton Mall in Alberta, Canada, opened in 1981 - with more than 800 stores and a hotel, amusement park, miniature-golf course, church, "water park" for sunbathing and surfing, a zoo and a 438-foot-long lake.

"mall" (n.) 1737, "shaded walk serving as a promenade," generalized from "The Mall", name of a broad, tree-lined promenade in St. James's Park, London (so called from 1670s, earlier "Maill", 1640s), which was so called because it formerly was an open alley that was used to play "pall-mall", a croquet-like game involving hitting a ball with a mallet through a ring, from French "pallemaille", from Italian "pallamaglio", from "palla" "ball" (see "balloon") + "maglio" "mallet" (see "mallet"). Modern sense of "enclosed shopping gallery" is from 1962 (from 1951 in reference to city streets set aside for pedestrians only). "Mall rat" is from 1985.

Some time ago we heard a stand-up comic quip that "malls" are so-called because we get "mauled" there. Believe it or not, there really is a connection between these two words. Any sculptors, miners or ship-builders among our readers will know that a "maul" is a kind of "hammer". It comes from the Latin "malleus" which also gave us "mallet". History buffs will remember that Edward I of England was known as "Malleus Scotorum", "the hammer of the Scots" and a famous book of the witch-hunters was "Malleus Maleficarum", "the hammer of the evil-doers".

Greater London and the London Boroughs

(E?)(L?) http://www.ons.gov.uk/ons/guide-method/geography/beginner-s-guide/administrative/england/greater-london-and-the-london-boroughs/index.html

Greater London was established in 1965 as an administrative unit covering the London metropolis. It was not defined as a county but had a two-tier structure, with the lower tier being the London boroughs. Following the abolition of the Greater London Council (GLC) in 1986 the boroughs became single-tier authorities, but Greater London was still widely recognised, especially for statistical and mapping purposes. In 2000 however a two-tier structure was re-established when the new Greater London Authority adopted responsibility for a range of citywide policy areas.

There are 32 actual boroughs, with a status similar to metropolitan districts, and also the City of London, which is a City Corporation and has a number of additional roles. Boroughs are subdivided into electoral wards.

Click on the extract above to view the full map of London boroughs.

London borough names and codes are listed below. The 4 character ONS code consists of the digits 00 followed by the 2 letters of the borough code, which is also listed separately after the borough name.

Paddington-Bär (W3)

Pall Mall (W3)

Engl. "mall" geht zurück auf engl. "mallet" = dt. "Holzhammer", "Poloschläger", "Krocketschläger" und weiter auf lat. "malleus", gen. lat. "mallei" = dt. "Hammer" (lat. "pellere malleo" = engl. "to strike with a mallet or bat").

Engl. "Mall" ist im wahrsten Sinne ein "Hammer". Während es das dt. "Bollwerk" nur von einer städtischen Verteidigungsanlage zum breiten frz. "Boulevard" geschafft hat, schaffte es "Mall" vom "Hammer" zum "Hammer-Spiel" zur "Hammer-Spiel-Strasse", zur "Hammer-Einkaufsstrasse" und schließlich zum "Einkaufszentrum".

Das schottische Ballspiel engl. "Pall-Mall", ("paille maille") auch als dt. "Baille-Maille"-Spiel bezeichnet, erhielt seinen Namen über frz. "pallemaille", das auf ital. "pallamaglio" zurück geht und sich aus ital. "palla" = dt. "Ball" und ital. "maglio" = dt. "Hammer" zusammen setzt. Das ergibt also "Hammerball".

Da "Pall Mall" früher oft auf einer geeigneten Strasse gespielt wurde ("pall-mall alley"), übertrug sich der Hammeranteil "Mall" auf die entsprechende Strasse und wurde (vor allem in den USA) über die "Einkaufsstrasse" zur Bezeichnung für eine "Einkaufspassage", "Einkaufszentrum".

Eine vornehme Strasse in London trägt den Namen "Pall Mall" und wurde, nachdem das "Pall Mall"-Spiel wahrscheinlich längst nicht mehr vor dem St. James's Palace gespielt wurde, zu einem Zentrum des Londoner Klublebens. Dies verlieh der Bezeichnung "Pall Mall" einen Anstrich von Noblesse. Und einige Produkte versuchten daran zu partizipieren und "Pall Mall" in die Produktbezeichnung zu integrieren.

Auf der Londoner "Pall Mall"-Straße - vom Trafalgar Square zum Green Park - wurde ab 1621 das dem Kricket ähnelnde Spiel zelebriert.

Vielleicht sollte die Benennung einer Zigarette als "Pall Mall" auch dazu dienen, die englischen Klubmitglieder von der Zigarre zur Zigarette zu führen.

"strip mall": A shopping complex containing a row of various stores, businesses, and restaurants that usually open onto a common parking lot.

The Game of Pall Mall

"Pall mall" appears to have originated in Italy and to have been introduced into France during the sixteenth century; (fn. 46) its name, "palle-maille" in French, (fn. 10) derived from the Italian "palla" = "ball" and "maglio" = "mallet", in reference to the equipment used by the players. The balls and mallets used in the game were made of wood. The mallet, which resembled those now used for croquet, had a slightly curved head with flattened ends, each bound with an iron hoop, and a long slender handle. There are in the British Museum a ball and a pair of mallets, one marked with the name 'Latoure'. They were presented in 1854 by G. Vulliamy, and had been found in his father's house at No. 68 Pall Mall, which had been occupied by the Vulliamy family since the 1760's. (fn. 47)

Pall Mall Gazette (W3)

Die Zeitschrift engl. "Pall Mall Gazette" übernahm ihre Bezeichnung von einer fiktiven Zeitschrift aus der Novelle " The History of Pendennis" (1848–1850) von William Makepeace Thackeray.

Für die von Thackeray als "written by gentlemen for gentlemen" beschriebene Zeitschrift bot sich "Pall Mall" als Name einer Londoner Strasse an, in der sich viele "gentlemen's clubs" angesiedelt hatten.

Insofern stand der Name der Strasse "Pall Mall" Pate für die "Pall Mall Gazette".

(E?)(L?) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pall_Mall_Gazette

The "Pall Mall Gazette" was an evening newspaper founded in London on 7 February 1865 by George Murray Smith; its first editor was Frederick Greenwood. In 1921, The Globe merged into the Pall Mall Gazette, which itself was absorbed into the Evening Standard in 1923.

Contents History

The "Pall Mall Gazette" took the name of a fictional newspaper conceived by William Makepeace Thackeray. "Pall Mall" is a street in London where many gentlemen's clubs are located, hence Thackeray's description of this imaginary newspaper in his novel The History of Pendennis (1848–1850):

"We address ourselves to the higher circles of society: we care not to disown it — the "Pall Mall Gazette" is written by gentlemen for gentlemen; its conductors speak to the classes in which they live and were born. The field-preacher has his journal, the radical free-thinker has his journal: why should the Gentlemen of England be unrepresented in the Press?
...
Several well-known writers contributed to the Pall Mall Gazette over the years. George Bernard Shaw gained his first job in journalism writing for the paper. Other contributors have included Anthony Trollope, Frederick Engels, Oscar Wilde, Robert Louis Stevenson, Sir Spencer Walpole, Arthur Patchett Martin,[1] and Jamaican-born writer E. S. Dallas.

"pallamaglio" zurück geht und sich aus ital. "palla" = dt. "Ball" und ital. "maglio" = dt. "Hammer" zusammen setzt. Das ergibt also "Hammerball".

The term "shopping mall" made its first appearance in 1959 and "strip mall" in 1977, those expressions claim an ancestor in the 17th century "mall". The original "mall" named an alley used for "pall-mall", a 17th century game played with a "mallet" and "ball". London's famous promenade mall was originally a "pall-mall alley"; its design of public areas with pedestrian walkways led naturally enough to its application to shopping areas used by the public.

Pall-mall

Samuel Pepys wrote in his diary for 2 April 1661: “So I into St. James’s Park, where I saw the Duke of York playing at Pelemele, the first time that ever I saw the sport.” Its name was more usually spelled "pall-mall", but he wrote it as he heard it in upper-class speech. Pepys saw it played where London’s "Pall Mall" now runs (the game was the direct origin of the street name) but the course was shifted later that same year, it is said because dust from royal carriages disrupted games. The new course was about 800 yards (740 metres) long, laid out where "The Mall" now lies.

Pallmall (W3)

Engl. "mall" geht zurück auf engl. "mallet" = dt. "Holzhammer", "Poloschläger", "Krocketschläger" und weiter auf lat. "malleus", gen. lat. "mallei" = dt. "Hammer".

Engl. "Mall" ist im wahrsten Sinne ein "Hammer". Während es das dt. "Bollwerk" nur von einer städtischen Verteidigungsanlage zum breiten frz. "Boulevard" geschafft hat, schaffte es "Mall" vom "Hammer" zum "Hammer-Spiel" zur "Hammer-Spiel-Strasse", zur "Hammer-Einkaufsstrasse" und schließlich zum "Einkaufszentrum".

Das schottische Ballspiel engl. "Pall-Mall", ("paille maille") auch als dt. "Baille-Maille"-Spiel bezeichnet, erhielt seinen Namen über frz. "pallemaille", das auf ital. "pallamaglio" zurück geht und sich aus ital. "palla" = dt. "Ball" und ital. "maglio" = dt. "Hammer" zusammen setzt. Das ergibt also "Hammerball".

Rotten Row (W3)

Die "Rotten Row" im Londoner Hyde-Park könnte man durchaus mit "scheußliche Schlägerei" übersetzen. Schließlich war der Hyde-Park nach der Öffnung für die Öffentlichkeit im Jahr 1635 lange Zeit berüchtigt für Raubüberfälle und Duelle. Deshalb ließ König William III. von Oranien (1650-1702) an der "Rotten Row" auch Laternen aufstellen. Dennoch hat die Bezeichnung "Rotten Row" eine noblere Herkunft. Es ist eine Verballhornung von frz. "Route du Roi" = dt. "Königsweg".

E. Cobham Brewer 1810–1897. Dictionary of Phrase and Fable. 1898.

Rotten Row.

Muster row. Camden derives the word from rotteran (to muster); hence rot, a file of six soldiers. Another derivation is the Norman Ratten Row (roundabout way), being the way corpses were carried to avoid the public thoroughfares. Others suggest Route du roi; and others the Anglo-Saxon rot, pleasant, cheerful; or rotten, referring to the soft material with which the road is covered.

Speakers' Corner (W3)

Im Jahr 1872 verabschiedete das britische Parlament den "Royal Parks and Gardens Regulation Act". Diesem verdankt auch der "Speakers' Corner", die "Redner Ecke" an der Nordostecke des Londoner Hyde-Parks sein Dasein. Hier hat jedermann das Recht, seine Meinung frei zu äußern.

In der "Speakers' Corner" konnte man u.a. treffen: Friedrich Engels, der am 01. Mai 1890 eine Ansprache hielt,in der er zur internationalen Solidarität der Arbeiterbewegung aufrief. In den 1980er Jahren konnte man hier auf hunderttausende Friedensdemonstranten treffen. Auch viele Kundgebungen gegen Rassismus starteten hier.

swan upper (W2)

In London gibt es Schwäne. Voe einigen Jahrhunderten dienten sie dem königlichen Hof zur Bereicherung der Speisekarte. Allerdings hat die britische Königin immer noch die Oberaufsicht über die Schwäne - zusammen mit zwei Gilden, den Weinhändlern (engl. "vintner") und den Färbern (engl. "Dyers"), denen im Mittelalter einige der Schwäne und deren Nachwuchs zugestanden wurden.

Seit über 900 Jahren findet jährlich eine Zählung statt, um den jeweiligen Anteil der Schwäne den drei beteiligten Eignern zuzuordnen. Mittlerweile dient dieser Census auch dem Naturschutz.

Für diese Aufgabe gibt es jedenfalls 6 livrierte Teams, die sogenannten "Swan uppers". - Wenn sie bei einem Schwanenpaar Nachkommen entdecken verkünden sie dies mit dem Ruf "All up!".

The Mall (W3)

Engl. "The Mall" ist der Name einer Prachtstrasse in London, auf der einst ein dem Kricket ähnliches Spiel genannt "Pall Mall" gespielt wurde.

Engl. "mall" geht zurück auf engl. "mallet" = dt. "Holzhammer", "Poloschläger", "Krocketschläger" und weiter auf lat. "malleus", gen. lat. "mallei" = dt. "Hammer" (lat. "pellere malleo" = engl. "to strike with a mallet or bat").

"mall" (n.) 1737, "shaded walk serving as a promenade," generalized from "The Mall", name of a broad, tree-lined promenade in St. James's Park, London (so called from 1670s, earlier "Maill", 1640s), which was so called because it formerly was an open alley that was used to play "pall-mall", a croquet-like game involving hitting a ball with a mallet through a ring, from French "pallemaille", from Italian "pallamaglio", from "palla" "ball" (see "balloon") + "maglio" "mallet" (see "mallet"). Modern sense of "enclosed shopping gallery" is from 1962 (from 1951 in reference to city streets set aside for pedestrians only). "Mall rat" is from 1985.

(E?)(L?) http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Mall

"The Mall" in London ist die Prachtstraße der Hauptstadt und die erste Etappe des Souveräns auf seiner Fahrt entweder zu den Houses of Parliament oder zum Exerzierplatz der Horse Guards. Sie erstreckt sich vom Buckingham Palace im Westen bis zum Admiralty Arch und dem Trafalgar Square an ihrem östlichen Ende. An Sonn- und Feiertagen sowie bei zeremoniellen Anlässen ist sie für den Verkehr gesperrt.

Geschichte

Unmittelbar vor den Toren des Buckingham Palace steht das Queen Victoria Memorial, während der Admiralty Arch am Ende sich zum Trafalgar Square hin öffnet. Auf der Südseite der Prachtstrasse befindet sich St. James's Park; gegenüber auf der Nordseite liegen der Green Park und der St. James's Palace. Ein Abzweig der Straße, die Horse Guards Road, führt südlich zur Horse Guards Parade ab, wo eine der drei - im Sommer täglichen - Wachablösungen stattfindet sowie einmal jährlich Trooping the Colour als nachgeholte Geburtstagsparade der Königin.

"The Mall" wurde im späten 19. und frühen 20. Jahrhundert als Route für zeremonielle Anlässe umgestaltet, einschließlich der von Aston Webb entworfenen neuen Fassade des Buckingham Palace sowie des neu errichteten Queen Victoria Memorial. Vorbilder waren die für hohe nationale Feierlichkeiten angelegten Prachtstraßen in Großstädten wie Washington D.C., Paris, Berlin, Mexiko-Stadt, Wien, St. Petersburg und Oslo.

Bei Staatsbesuchen fahren die britische Königin oder der britische König begleitet von einer Eskorte mit dem Staatsgast die mit den Flaggen beider Staaten geschmückte Mall hinauf.

Ursprünglich wurde "The Mall" als breite Avenue schon in den 1660er Jahren angelegt. Nach ihrer Fertigstellung avancierte sie in kurzer Zeit zu Londons bevorzugter Flaniermeile.

Während der Olympischen Sommerspiele 2012 war The Mall Start- und Zielgerade mehrerer Wettbewerbe im Radsport und in der Leichtathletik. Unter anderem wurden hier die Straßenrennen, die Geher-Wettkämpfe und die Marathonläufe entschieden.

Pall-mall

Samuel Pepys wrote in his diary for 2 April 1661: “So I into St. James’s Park, where I saw the Duke of York playing at Pelemele, the first time that ever I saw the sport.” Its name was more usually spelled "pall-mall", but he wrote it as he heard it in upper-class speech. Pepys saw it played where London’s "Pall Mall" now runs (the game was the direct origin of the street name) but the course was shifted later that same year, it is said because dust from royal carriages disrupted games. The new course was about 800 yards (740 metres) long, laid out where "The Mall" now lies.

Love, famous musicians, kidnapping, and embezzlement - these are just a few of the themes readers will uncover when they dip into the stories in this engaging new book about London's past.

Most Londoners know that "Guy Lombardo Avenue" was named after "Guy Lombardo", the famous big band leader and native son, but they seldom know about the people who gave their names to "Holman Street", "Cronyn Street", or "McCormick Street". Street names are a living record of a community's history. When readers learn something about the name of a street, they often learn something new about the place where they live as well.

London Street Names includes more than 100 thoroughfares in the city. Each alphabetically organized entry has something interesting to say about the city's social, political, cultural or military history. Richly illustrated in colour and black-and-white with modern and archival photographs, this book offers a fascinating window onto the history of London.

From "Cock Lane", "Pissing Alley", "Houndsditch" and "Old Jewry" to "Shaftesbury Ave" and "Marcus Garvey Way", London's place names serve as documents to its citizens ever-shifting lives and preoccupations. The novelist Maureen Duffy once described London's street signs as an alternative national portrait gallery; and the vicissitudes of England's history can be glimpsed in so many of the capital's names. Chepe, Dogs and Rotten Row: How London Was Named is a book that liberates London etymology from dictionary corner, offering instead a lively, idiosyncratic tour of the whole messy ephemera of the capital's nomenclature. Elborough, by scrutinising names etched into our collective consciousness, provides an insightful and entertaining account of the city's wayward development.
