In the 19th Century there grew to be such a concentration of Italians in one part of London that the area became known as "Little Italy". Comprehensively illustrated with historic photographs and illustrations, this book tells the fascinating story of this Italian quarter from the time of the first Italian settlers up to the last days of the community in the later 20th Century. Ice cream, organ-grinders and monkeys, hokey-pokey men, murder, gangsters, and spectacular processions - these are just some of the ingredients that add up to make the story of London's Italian quarter, a story full of colour, incident and drama.
