The Seven Curses of London

James Greenwood is considered one of the first "investigative journalists" of Victorian London's seedy underbelly.

In his book (of the same name) he examines the seven "curses" of London

  • beggars, drunks, thieves, neglected children, prostitutes, gamblers and "wasters of charity."

An insightful view of the dirtier side of London life.
