Historian Lee Jackson, author of Palaces of Pleasure, recounts the history of London’s 19th-century pleasure gardens, from the faltering last days of Vauxhall to Chelsea’s infamous Cremorne Gardens, Highbury Barn and the Eagle Tavern (of “Pop Goes the Weasel” fame).

The rise and fall of the Victorian pleasure garden tells us a good deal about the growth of commercial mass entertainment in the industrial age. It’s a story packed with dramatic spectacle, from fake icebergs to burning men, tightrope walkers and human frogs, prostitution and the Polka, parachuting monkeys, and the power of money.

  1. Since I grew up in a strongly religious family, I grew up not believing in Spiritualists or ever imagined that I would get the help of a traditional healer sangoma. Having been employed for 9 years in the same position, training newcomers that join the company, get promoted and am still stuck in the same position no matter how hard I worked or applications I placed in every time there was an opportunity, this got me so stressed. At home it was not any different, my relationship was sour, we had tried for 5 years to conceive but in vain. I visited so many hospitals, used various herbs but still never got a child was seeking a separation because of the family pressure. One day on social media my long-time friend living in Durban got in touch with me and in a few days later I opened up to her about what was happening in my life, she advised me to try this powerful spiritual healer that had helped her sometime back, I was hesitant at first because I did not like the idea of going to a spiritual healer, I thought for a while about contacting this person, then decided to give it a try, so I called Her(Dr.Mama Nana) the healer on +27672073600, lucky for me she was available to see me and she was in the same country. Long story short, she helped me a lot, I got a much better job in the company I had long wanted to work in, with very good pay, I paid lobola to my wife's family, our wedding was last year in January and I am soon setting up my first side big business(Beauty Shop) anywhere I want. I must say my perception was totally wrong, if you need help too don't wait till its too late contact Healer on +27672073600
