Beastly London : A History of Animals in the City
Horse-drawn cabs rattling through the streets, terrified cattle being herded along congested thoroughfares to Smithfield market, pigs squealing and grunting in back yards - London was once filled with a cacophony of animal noises (and smells). But over the last thirty years, the city seems to have finally banished animals from its streets, apart from a few well-loved beasts such as the ravens at the Tower of London and the shire horses that pull the Lord Mayor's golden coach. Londoners once shared their homes with all kinds of animals - pets, livestock and vermin - and the streets were full of horses, cattle and the animal entertainers that performed to passers-by.
