Full image caption

In Chapter IX of 'London: a Pilgrimage' by Blanchard Jerrold and Gustave Doré, 1872, Jerrold describes inhabitants of the West End as follows: 'The non-workers, viz, those who are able, choose, or are compelled to live without labour, are a minority; but they are powerful by their culture and their wealth. The rich and high-born - so often miscalled - the idle; whose province it is to lead in society, to fill Chiswick Gardens and give a brilliant aspect to the Ladies' Mile, are a distinct, exclusive, cultivated, and winning class.'
