The feelMoreOriginally published in 1926, this book was written in response to demand for a companion volume to The Heart of London. The disarming sincerity with which Morton writes is, perhaps, responsible for the charm and fascination of his books. The feel and smell of the city, also a sense of movement, find their way into these light-hearted wanderings, and, combined with humour, acute observation, sympathy and an engaging curiosity, have justly gained for them a wide and increasing popularity.

This book is full of anecdotes from his daily trawls of London, packed with humour and charm.
