Pedestrianism

PEDESTRIANISM

Pedestrianism - long-distance endurance walking - was a popular entertainment, or perhaps we shuould say a sport, during the Victorian period. See here for an example or two. A reader, however, alerts me to his new book 'King of the Peds' which tackles this very subject - well worth a look?

  1. Peter Lovesey tackled this subject in his 1970 Sgt. Cribb adventure Wobble to Death.
