SUNDAY is longer so dull as it used to be for the stranger in London. The Sunday quiet affords an excellent opportunity for studying the buildings and topography of the City (p. 85), and the explorer may pay a morning visit to the animated Jews’ market in and about Middlesex St. (p. 140; beware of pickpockets). At the opposite end of the town takes place the ‘Church Parade’ in Hyde Park (p. 48). On Sun. afternoons many museums and galleries are open, bands play in several of the parks, offering a counter- attraction to the Sunday orators (comp. p. 48), and coaches and excursion brakes ply to resorts in the environs. The cinemas (p. xxxvi) are open from 6 p.m.; concerts are frequent; and many hotels and restaurants provide musical and other entertainments at dinner. Sunday is a favourite day for boating-excursions on the Upper Thames (p. 233), and, though the custom of ‘week-ending’ in the country draws off a number of Londoners, Sunday evening is popular for dinners and other social gatherings.PDF Link (Thanks, Eric!)
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
