A portrait of a Victorian child's urban life.

The Victorian Town Child Summary

The Victorian Town Child by Pamela Horn

The rise of urban society meant that a great majority of people were living in towns at the end of the 19th century. In industrial centres the proportion of children was well above the national average, while in market towns it was below. This volume examines various aspects of the life of the Victorian child -- wealth and poverty, work and education, deprivation and crime, leisure and survival, stressing the changes which occurred over time in attitudes to town children and childhood, as well as the differences in the children's education and lifestyles according to their social class and where they lived.
