Full image caption

Over London by rail. Engraving. View of the London slums by Gustave Dore from 'Londre a Pilgrimage', first published in 1872. This illustration is a bird's eye view of the slums of London, it shows the poor and overcrowed conditions in which the poor lived in Victorian times, where "There is a desperate, ferocious levity in the air... they (the poor) are the workless of a work-a day London - born in idleness to die in the workhouse, or upon bare boards."




1872 AD - 1872 AD
