About this title

Synopsis:

In 1872 Gustave Dore published "London: A Pilgrimage", in which he captured, often from memory, the life of the world's greatest city. His London was a city of contrasts: of light and shadow, a vital, bustling metropolis which encompassed the fashionable Ladies' Mile in Hyde Park and the appalling poverty of the East End rookeries. But what was Victorian London really like? This illustrated picture-documentary brings into clear focus the architecture, environment and people of London during a period of unprecedented expansion. Eric de Mare's informative text tells us about the everyday lives of Londoners, how they worked, how they dressed, how they dealt with poverty, education, crime and sex, and how they entertained themselves. Accompanied by many of Gustave Dore's evocative engravings as well as other illustrations and photographs from contemporary records, "Victorian London Revealed" provides a stunningly vivid portrait of a world that has left us an imposing legacy.
