Summary
Henry Mayhew and collaborators explored the back streets of London during the 1840s and 1850s, gathering thousands of pages of testimony from the city's humbler residents. This extract focuses on the criminal class, whose true stories of degradation, horror, and desperation rival Dickensian fiction
