Byers' Choice Carolers Cries of London
In the nineteenth-century London, the hum of the city was a far cry from what we know today. Instead of the blaring horns, screeching brakes, and sirens, the sound on the street was of vendors peddling their wares, usually in song. Many of these songs have survived and can be heard sung by children on playgrounds everywhere. The collection was created to recaptured the times in the Cries of London series.
