Gobbets of the week #28

Here are links to the top 10 gobbets of London history we liked this week:

1. The London that might have been: architectural wonders (and monstrosities) that never got past the drawing board. 

2. Slashing throats for 170 years: the ‘real’ Sweeney Todd.

  

3. As we approach the 800th Lord Mayor’s show, a video of the 1967 event...

4. …another showing just how they get the Lord Mayor’s coach out of the Museum of London…

  
5. …and a song about the Lord Mayor’s coachman!

6. Two London artists from London Historians:  Celebrating Hogarth and Gillray’s Ghost. 

  
7. The grizzly story of Bunhill Fields. 

8. From Spitalfields Life, John Thomas Smith’s rural cottages.

9. More ‘from the City to the Sea’: part IV – the Thames Estuary; part V – the Thames at night

10. …and finally…the Return of London’s Fog?
