The Herb Lester Associates have scoured London for experts, virtuosos and old hands in the realms of retail and repair. The 61 entries are spread across the city, a maker of rubberwear in Richmond, carpet mender in Woolwich, architectural ironmonger on City Road, formalwear-for-hire in Chelsea. There are cobblers, ironmongers, bookbinders, pen shops, fabric shops and a watchmender hidden away in the depths of Piccadilly Circus tube station.
Before we go on a trip we always make sure to grab one of these guides to the usual and the unusual around the globe by Herb Lester Associates. They are witty, pretty, curious and opinionated pocket sized maps that are great for both tourists and locals.
