Two more local histories of London at British History Online

British History Online has added two more local histories of London:

  • Old and New London, volume 6 (1878) by Edward Walford, which "describes the southern suburbs of London, from Chiswick, Putney and Hammersmith in the west, to Streatham and Norwood in the south, and Southwark, Bermondsey, Greenwich and Eltham in the east"; and
  • The Environs of London, volume 1, County of Surrey (1792) by Daniel Lysons, which "covers much of present-day south London, including Bermondsey, Croydon, Kingston-upon-Thames and Lambeth".
