Great introduction to the subject,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Victorian Workhouse (Shire Album) (Paperback)
Although this book is very brief and almost a pamphlet, it is well written and illustrated and is an excellent introduction to the subject.
There are some excellent illustrations and archive newspaper adverts and articles from the time which are printed here with excellent clarity.
The text itself is very informative and provides a great overview on the history of the workhouse.
There are more extensive books on the subject, but this short, diverting read is an informative, well presented and enjoyable one.
