See the Victorian sights and sounds of Old London Town through the children's books of the time, in Hawk Norton's Londonist article. Wonderful picture plates of trains on the underground, St. Paul's Cathedral, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, Cleopatra's Needle and shopping arcades, accompanied by rhyming verse. This is how London was portrayed to Victorian children, and Norton explains how the development of the children's books included amongst fairy tales a genre of books about London.
See Hawk Norton's article, and complete the rhyme:
From morn till night,
Clattering through tunnels without daylight...."
