Unflinching reports of Londonas poor from a prolific and influential English writer

"London Labour and the London Poor" originated in a series of articles, later published in four volumes, written for the "Morning Chronicle" in 1849 and 1850 when journalist Henry Mayhew was at the height of his career. Mayhew aimed simply to report the realities of the poor from a compassionate and practical outlook. This penetrating selection shows how well he succeeded: the underprivileged of London become extraordinarily and often shockingly alive.
