City Poems

by user38915



A great guide for Londoners, tourists and poetry lovers everywhere. In the days before newspapers poems were often the main record of street life and social changes. This app conjures up classic poems from past centuries to illuminate the present whether a seventeenth century pub crawl, a football match erupting in Covent Garden, a man allowed “one for the road” at a Holborn pub before being hanged, advice on red light districts, a public burning in Smithfield or the verse behind the statues in Trafalgar Square. Let City Poems be your guide through the streets of London as satellite navigation tells you how far away you are from the buried stories of history.
