London ran to 290 pp. Demy 8vo (c. 101K words) containing sixteen chapters, three of which are divided into subtitled sections, with twenty-six scene breaks overall. The running heads and section titles are set inconsistently, suggesting different press processes. There are also two uncredited end paper drawings in red showing ‘The Future Piccadilly Circus And Its Surroundings In 1656’ (front) and ‘Piccadilly Circus And Its Surroundings In 1948’ (back).
