Availability: This title is currently not available.


In The Blue Riband, Peter York, chronicler of London's elites, looks at the 'uptown top-ranking' relationship between the grand - but still accessible via the Tube - locations of central London and humbler Londoners. He considers how aspirant Londoners were drawn to the centre and how in the 21st Century hopeful new Londoners from practically everywhere filter through Heathrow and the outer suburbs, and end Up West, wanting to be part of it. He looks at Piccadilly, the entertainment hub of the Edwardian empire, through the eyes of that eternally resonant figure Burlington Bertie from Bow.
