Bounded on three sides by rivers, this district of London has changed its name, its character and its location over ten centuries. A careful study of Pimlico's topography reveals medieval market gardening and an abbot's holiday home, Georgian docks and distilleries, a canal with no boats, Florence Nightingale's industrial uncle, and social changes brought about by wars and a railway station.
