The Good Old Days - Crime, Murder and Mayhem in Victorian London

Description: Were things really better in the good old days? The 19th century was a time when there were not only massive gulfs being created between the upper, middle, and working classes, but there was also a growing awareness of the existence of an even more impoverished underclass: a terrifying demi-monde of criminals, tarts, and no-hope low lifes. Gilda O'Neill's powerful exploration of the teeming underbelly that was to be found in the fog-bound streets, rat-infested slums, common lodging houses, boozers, penny gaffs, and brothels in the heart of the greatest empire that the world has ever seen brings to life the real working-class London of Victoria's reign.
