"Fleet Street is all about newspapers", that's not quite true. This book looks at seven centuries of Fleet Street's history, as a mediaeval suburb, the passage way for pageants, its change in the reformation, before and after the great plague and fire and more. It also describes the old booksellers, coffee houses, white friars and taverns that could be found in the street. Finishing with chapters about the changes brought by the newspapers. The maps of the street that are included on the CD make it easy to visualize the streets of the past.

Ideal for those with local history interests in Fleet Street or for those whose ancestors lived and worked there.
