Full image caption

An illustration of a man holding a child, from 'London: a Pilgrimage' by Blanchard Jerrold and Gustave Doré, 1872. Jerrold writes of "sad, lonely, unclassed men, who are striving might and main to keep out of the lowest depths: widowers left with sickly children; small tradesmen who have been ruined, and are not fit for rough unskilled work; even men of superior station" who try to find work "as worn-out, unfortunate clerks or schoolmasters" or "who in their very despair, beg".
