320pp. Published in this hardback edition by arrangement with Fontana. How did the poor live in Victorian and Edwardian England? In the slums of London and Birmingham? In the iron-town of Middlesbrough? In a Devon fishing village? In rural Essex? In York? The 'Social Explorers' included journalists, wealthy businessmen, a minister's wife and a popular novelist. They left their comfortable homes and, often in disguise, lived with the poor, joining casual paupers in the workhouse, taking up residence in crowded tenements and going on the tramp with destitutes. A selection from the reports they sent back and a superb study of the conditions suffered by the poor of the time. Includes Bibliography.
