I think this would appeal to those interested in the Victorian way of life and it's very informative - although at times somewhat depressing - as an account of how those down on their luck had to manage in Victorian London. For those that find history lessons a bit two dimensional and dull, this e-book helps to bring notable aspects of Victorian London to life - highly recommended.

Hard reading at times, just because of the old style of writing, but it was so interesting to read that I persevered and am glad I did. Interesting that even the doctors didn't seem to be appreciated in the workhouse.

Have to say thoroughly enjoyed reading this although the language of the times does make it difficult to decipher at times. Eye opener as to what these people had to endure and, compared to life today, we do have it good. Insightful and informative about a topic that interests me greatly.

This book not only gives one an informed insight into the horrific conditions of life in the Workhouse but also of the bigotted mindset and profiteering of the inmates so called betters, i.e. the Guardians, Masters, Matrons etc. An essential read for all that are interested in Britrsh Social History.

The first half of this book is worth the selling price alone. It confirms Charles Dickens' version of the Workhouses of London. Such a different picture to that of our local House of Industry. Unfortunately the second half becomes maudlin and boring. That was still worth every penny of the Pound paid!!!

Currently interested in the times of the workhouse, I picked this book for insight into the medical side of the system,this book showed me that the efforts of good men can be thwarted by ignorant,small-minded people who wish to profit from the excursions of others and will do anything to blacken a good persons name to further their own self-importance. An excellent read I found interesting and informative

Gave a insight to poverty and the so called remedies in the Victorian age. A few of todays plights are in there as well.
