I agree with Kim, finding places in London from overseas is mind
racking, without books of help you get nowhere and when you do get them
not everything is listed ( as my request for Ponsonby Terrace, Vauxhall
). We from overseas appreciate the help we get, from one and all. I
don't mind reading 60 or so a day, keep it up please.
Beaufort, Victoria, Australia

The people on this list
