Friday, August 3, 2007 Guildhall Library

The Guildhall Library was an interesting facility to visit in that it is a reference, not a lending library, and it focuses mainly, but not exclusively on the history of the City of London. It houses printed books, manuscripts, maps, prints and drawings, and proves very useful to genealogists and other researchers. I really enjoyed going into the bookshop and had a really hard time not spending a lot of money on London maps, London puzzles, and London books. I did buy one book that is full of London trivia, but refrained from buying anything else. This was the last tour that we did as a group.
