I post about the London Topographical Society about once a year, when I get their newsletter with details their AGM. AGMs can be grim, but not theirs. They are held in various interesting buildings, and are then members can pick up their annual publication - this year "The A-Z of Charles II's London, London actually Survey'd by William Morgan", which will be a facsimile of the original publication. Thanks to my LTS membership I have a similar Edwardian A-Z, and worth endless pouring over. The contributors are distinguished local historians, working as volunteers, and the publications are great value for the annual membership of £20.

And honestly, I'm not on a commission to drum up membership for the LTS.

Hello Tim,

I cannot express how thankful I am of your post. I spend an extraordinary amount of my life pouring over maps of London. And, of course, I am often lurking with intent in Stanfords map store in Covent Garden. I observe, Tim, that they are selling The A to Z of Edwardian London at
Stanfords for £30. And as a member of The London Topographical Society for only £22.50. I canít wait to take delivery. And Iíve got my greedy eye on the other 5 in the A to Z series now.

Oh, Iím ever so pleased that this yearís 113th AGM is at Central Church of the RAF, St. Clement Danes Church. One of my favourite English nursery rhymes is ďOranges and LemonsĒ. Well, so say the bells of St Clementís. The bells evidently ring out the tune of the rhyme but Iíve never been there in time for that. Maybe this is my year?

Thank you again, Tim. Iím about to semi-retire this month and Iím looking for things to do to keep me mind and body active. Apart from lurking on The Cloud Appreciation Society and on this website and hanging around The Science Museum Iíve been wondering what Iíll be doing with my days ahead. Now I got a new favourite thing.

Cheers,

Rob (a.k.a. Cellar Door)
