The Victorian City Everyday life in Dickens' London, 23 Mar 2013
Judith Flanders has a knack of bringing her subject to life. She showed 19th century London expanding at a breathtaking rate into a sprawling, vibrant, squalid, noisy yet exciting metropolis. I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in social history. I first purchased the book for my Kindle, but I have now bought a hard back copy which shows the illustrations to greater advantage.
