Hello there. My name’s Tom, I’m a lifelong London resident and this here’s mah blog. It’s dedicated to London in all its forms – the history, the geography, the art and literature, the weird little places that catch your eye. If it’s to do with London, I’ll blog it. Updated on Wednesday and Sunday evenings, plus whenever I feel like it.
About the title
A London Particular was a nickname given to the thick, murky and often toxic fogs that plagued London until the Clean Air Act was brought into effect in 1956. You know, the sort of thing that Sherlock Holmes is always running into as he chases Jack the Ripper. As the name was going begging, I thought it would make a nice title.
About the author
Yr Humble Chronicler was born at an unknown date, although the earliest documentation to mention him appears in the early 1980s. Following a period of drunkenness and debauchery, he sank into an opium-induced stupor in 2003. London Particulars is written during the fifteen minutes of coherence he enjoys each day.
