Panton details London's growth from its foundation in Roman times to its modern place as one of the world's preeminent financial, commercial and cultural capitals. Entries cover general themes (such as immigration, housing, street markets, and health care) as well as specific topics (including individual historic buildings, financial institutions, museums, transport modes, major city center hotels and West End theaters). Significant contributors to the city's government, such as the legendary Dick Whittington, also receive attention, along with immigrant groups and major events such as the Great Fire, the Great Plague, the development of the subway system, and the growth of the Stock Exchange.
