For Britain, the 19th century was an age of invention, mechanisation, railway building, a powerful empire and increasing urbanisation. Fortunes were made - and lost and thousands who had come to find a better life in the growing cities struggled against disease and rising crime. But there were also those who had the determination and political skills to change this situation and improve the squalid and often dangerous working and social conditions of London's expanding population. This talk, supported by a visual Powerpoint presentation, highlights the double-standards that existed in the Victorian age and the contrasting lifestyles and attitudes between the rich and powerful and those who struggled constantly against poverty and deprivation.
