Quick Reference

(London) was for centuries the home of the newspaper industry and the name is still used to describe the national press. It ran from the Fleet river, a noisome ditch, to the Strand—strategically between the city and the court. In the 1980s there was a wholesale exodus of newspapers to less‐congested sites elsewhere.
