So I'm hoping to set my story/novel in London, circa 1925ish. Mrs. Dalloway London, you know...trouble is, I only have a pretty nondescript map and a few other pieces of writing that share this setting, so anything you can share to help would be really great. The story centres around a young writer from a wealthy family living in London, the main bits of the plot aren't problematic as they're not too affected by setting, so I need help along the following kinds of lines: - Where would he go to socialise/party? Where would other upper-class people host parties? And is there/was there a particular district where this would happen? - I was thinking of having him live on the bank of the river thames with a view of big ben and the houses of parliament. Could anyone give me a description of the kind of property around this area (in that time period if possible)? - a major scene I want to have happen in a wooded park, but i dont think there are any of these in metropolitan london? so i need either a descripton of the popular parks in london (im thinking hyde park) or an alternative location I could feasably use... - and finally, just other general things, like where would he shop, if youknow, where and what would he drink, how much would it cost? finally, this isn't so important, but if someone could give me a brief run-down of english military involvement in France during/post-WWI. I know its a lot to ask and im doing as much research as I can manage on my own, but it would be really helpful if anyone could offer anything at all. Thanks a milli!
