"Born into a poor family in the rocky heart of France, Martin Nadaud tramped hundreds of miles to Paris to find work at age fourteen. He became a stonemason, a revolutionary, and a member of Parliament. After the failure of the 1848 Revolution, he was forced into a long and lonely exile in England. Nadaud found work on the building sites of Victorian London and eventually, under an assumed name, became a schoolmaster in Wimbledon. He made his final triumphant return to his homeland in 1870, as France sat poised on the brink of humiliation, bloodshed, and rebirth."--Jacket

The fields beneath : the history of one London village by Gillian Tindall( Book )

22 editions published between 1977 and 2012 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

London, that city of villages, has never been so vividly recounted as in this particular study of Kentish Town. Gillian Tindall takes us along the banks of London's long-buried Fleet River, past wells and into public houses to reveal the real but fascinating history of its tenants, traders, freeholders and landlords. We watch as this village is absorbed by the metropolis and observe its desperate struggle to keep an identity, despite being fragmented by railways, bombed and developed. The Fields Beneath is one of a precious handful of books (like Montaillou and Akenfield) that in their pr

Footprints in Paris : a few streets, a few lives by Gillian Tindall( Book )

8 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book evokes the texture and atmosphere of a hidden Paris which has survived against all the odds of time and chance. Using a handful of lives and a specific location to exemplify 200 years of history, the author focuses on a few of the oldest streets in Paris's Latin Quarter. Her study shows how Paris has drawn into its magnetic field people who have variously found there education or enlightenment, a refuge or a secret garden, even a different identity. Half a dozen individuals, all related in some way, reveal a web of human feeling and experiences across two centuries."--Global Books in Print
The house by the Thames : and the people who lived there by Gillian Tindall( Book )

11 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Just across the River Thames from St. Paul's Cathedral stands an old house. It is the last genuine survivor of what was once a long ribbon of elegant houses overlooking the water. Built in the days of Queen Anne, it stands in the footprint of a far older habitation. Once, on this spot, was the Cardinal's Cap, a timbered Tudor inn; its vaulted cellars are still there, beneath the bricks and plaster and panelling of later centuries." "Some of the people who have lived in the house have been skilled; some were prosperous traders in the coal and iron on which Britain's industrial revolution ran. Some were rich and flamboyant; one was an early film star. Others have been among London's numberless poor." "All these real people, from the most famous to the most obscure, Gillian Tindall has researched through multiple archives, old newspapers, contemporary accounts and the memories of their descendents. She breathes life into the forgotten names of individuals who were as passionate in their time as we ourselves - and in so doing makes them stand for legions of others and for whole worlds that we have lost through hundreds of years of London's history."--Jacket

The tunnel through time : a new route for an old London journey by Gillian Tindall( Book )

7 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is the largest building project in Europe today, buried deep beneath the metropolis of London. The great scheme for Crossrail, offering high-speed links across the capital, has been a dream on planners' desks for decades, but is fast becoming a reality, as the tunnelling and earth-shifting machines have moved inexorably, like underground monsters, from opposing directions to their final meeting point. Soon the hoardings that guard the surface works will make way for light-filled stations, and the 'Elizabeth line' will be complete. Focusing on key Crossrail points, Gillian Tindall traces the course of the new line which is also the route of countless long-past journeys in and out of the capital
