Blog: Londoner's Diary
By Michael Ellis
Between 2002 and 2008 I produced something called the Londoner’s Diary. I had worked on several guides to the city before this time and producing a London-specific diary with photographs and anecdotes about various curiosities seemed like a good way to round up some of the information I’d picked up along the way but which couldn’t be included within the strictures of a normal guidebook. Because of the increasingly maddening machinations of the book trade (I foolishly thought that things would become easier year on year) I stopped producing the diary in 2009. Several kind people have asked whether I would start it up again. Although I have no plans to do so, I can at least post here a few of the better entries from the diary’s seven years. I didn’t archive the project at all well, so there is no particular order to the posts, but they will appear as and when I come across the images.
