Synopsis

Did you know: - that, with more than 17,000 skeletons in its collection, the Museum of London has over three times the amount of dead bodies than a full-capacity audience at the Royal Albert Hall? - that 'Farting Lane' (Carting Lane, off the Strand) was so christened because it was illuminated at night by a street lamp run on the methane gas produced by guests staying at the nearby Savoy Hotel! - that Burlington Arcade was commissioned by Lord Cavendish to stop dead cats from being thrown over his garden wall. - and that Woodford is the only London Underground station not to have at least one letter in common with the word elephantiasis?
