The A to Z Streetmap has earned its place on just about every Londoner's bookshelf. Even in these sat-nav centered days, it is still indispensible, and it is hard to imagine any time without it. But, if it wasn't for Phyllis Pearsall, a portrait painter who got lost walking to a party, it would not have existed. Phyllis had the idea of creating a street by street map and then walked 3,000 miles to create it. Read her story here.

This post was inspired in part by seeing how many old A-Z I had lying around, and part by an A-Z amble through London's more obscure museums A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P QR S T U V
