5.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting read, 16 Feb 2013
A very interesting read on life in Louth Workhouse, including its history. Many people who passed through the Workhouse have been mentioned including their reasons for admission. A very interesting insight into life in a 19th century Workhouse
The Story of Louth House of Correction 1671-1872 by Bill Painter
5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing read, 16 Feb 2013
A fabulous book which includes real life stories of many Lincolnshire people who passed through Louth House of Correction and their punishment, including potentially transportation, some very sad stories indeed. Many people are named. An interesting read also for anybody who would like to understand crime and punishment during this era. The crimes are very varied from murder, to vagrancy, prostitution , theft and bastardy. Highly recommended! Life in the House of Correction illustrated etc
