Victorian Places?

QUIZ - what does the following ranking show? Why is London at the top, and Kokomo (as in 'Key Largo, Montego, baby why don't we go ...') above Paris. Ah, mes amis, the shame of it.

It's a frivolous answer, as random lists go, so don't think too hard. It relates to the last few days, since I discovered something pretty amazing on the Internet, which I should have discovered ages ago.

There is a prize ... if you're on Twitter, twitter the answer with tag @victorianlondon and the first correct answer gets a free copy of London Dust, my first novel (that's if you want a copy, of course - I won't lit-spam your home without some encouragement). If no-one twitters - and it's quite likely - then answers in comments below will suffice!
