Lucy describes London life immediately before the Georgian period, dwelling on the city's infrastructure prior to the Great Fire of London and its subsequent rebuilding. Social, religious and monarchial influences are brought to the fore as we find out what shaped our capital during this period.
Lucy's book Georgian London: Into The Streets will be in shops from 5 September 2013, and is available to pre-order now.
