Abstract:
In 1964 two geographers J.T. Coppock and H.C. Prince, published a book of essays entitled Greater London, and seven years later in 1971, Francis Sheppard published a review of the history of London during the nineteenth century, entitled London 1808-187O: The Infernal Wen. Each book was the first of its kind to be published for many years, and each thus exemplifies and summarises the work of the post-war generation of scholars writing about the Metropolis. Although a large number of topographical studies were already available, many of them consisted chiefly of chronological resumes of the history of streets, buildings and their inhabitants, and there was little attempt to recognise patterns of growth, or to examine distributions.
