Meet outside Pimlico Tube Station, Rampayne Street Exit. There you will
recognise the Beardsley Woman carrying a Yellow Book under her arm.
Accompany her to various places associated with Aubrey in Pimlico. Then,
after "A Short Ride in an Omnibus", reconvene at Green Park Underground
Station to plunge into the publishing domain of Lane and Smithers. The walk
will last approximately three hours and will conclude for refreshment at a
nearby public house.
