About this book
A comprehensive history of the foremost pleasure garden of 18th and 19th century London. Fully illustrated.
From their early beginnings in the Restoration until the final closure in Queen Victoria's reign, Vauxhall Gardens developed from a rural tavern and place of assignation into a dream-world. This title reveals how Vauxhall linked high and popular culture in ways that look forward to the manner in which both art and entertainment have evolved.
