This review is from: London Labour and the London Poor: Selection (Classics) (Paperback)
This book is easy to read and full of very interesting facts and anecdotes. Not only are there many examples of the different types of occupation in Victorian London, but details are also given of the extent and income of each occupation and personal accounts, which means that it is not dry at all and a fascinating read. It was very interestingt to read about the real lives of people and the hardship they experienced and appeared to get used to!!
I could not put it down and would heartily recommend it to all.
