Dear John -
Rather unexpectedly, the books came a short while ago - I hadn't supposed they'd turn up for some weeks yet!
Many thanks, and my best for your excellent Web endeavours!
I can't close, though, without recommending Gary Giblin's absolutely thorough book, 'Hitchcock's London' (Midnight Marquee, 2006) which I've just finished. Fair size photos on every page, albeit only b/w ones.
Plus clear instructions for getting to each and every place mentioned.
Good cheer - Ken Mogg
