Nestling as it does between the new Globe and the Tate Modern it has some fascinating stories to tellThis is a very interesting book that for me really came alive towards the end She debunks the supposed direct connections with Wren with Shakespeare and Johnson and many others but then adds fascinating modern ones It has connections to the business of the Thames for hundreds of year to the British film industry and to Hollywood and to some remarkable charactersA fascinating read
