Summary
Discover London - and Canada - in one guidebook! Thousands of Canadians visit London, England, every year. But what their popular guidebooks always fail to mention are the over one hundred objects, monuments, and locations in the city associated with their own home and native land. Take for example the statue of half-mad General Charles Gordon standing beside the River Thames. His capture by rebels set in motion a dramatic rescue attempt that became Canada's first overseas military mission. Then there's the world's most famous suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst. Do Canadians know she marched on syphilis in Canada after winning the vote for women in Britain? Or that a cross-eyed doctor from McGill University in Montreal became London's most notorious serial killer after Jack the Ripper? London Eh to Zed is a light-hearted and entertaining walking guide especially for Canadians. Exploring seven neighborhoods in London, it uncovers 101 fun discoveries about our history, character, passions, and foibles. Along streets in St. James's, Greenwich, and elsewhere, readers will meet men and women like the doomed adventurer Sir John Franklin, the un-amused Queen Victoria, and the tennis-loving but luckless Prince Rupert, first governor of the Hudson's Bay Company, who never collected any HBC Rewards
