Snapshots from the Past 25 Mar. 2014
By J. R. Trtek - Published on
Following in the footsteps of Henry Mayhew's classic London Labour and the London Poor, Street Life in London was first published in twelve monthly parts beginning in 1877, more than a quarter century after Mayhew's survey. The series was accompanied by photographs taken by John Thompson, and pictures and text together paint a colorful picture of street life in the British capital. Musicians, medicine sellers, card-dealers, flower women and more are profiled to a tee. This edition includes large renditions of the photos all together in one section, in addition to smaller versions that grace the corresponding text. To get a quick sense of the nitty grity in mid-Victorian London, one might be hard pressed to find a better way to accomplish that goal.
