London's Monuments Book
The monument to Quintin Hogg commemorates one of the country’s great philanthropists who dedicated much of his life to teaching street children and was nearly murdered several times for his efforts. The less worthy figure of George IV has a much grander monument – which is not surprising as he paid for the monument himself using public funds. The good, the bad, the courageous and the cowardly all have a permanent place on the streets of London. Using London's Monuments, the reader can walk among the statuary of the capital and bring history to life, from Queen Boudicca’s fight against the Romans to Nelson Mandela’s struggle against apartheid.
