Now available for the first time in more than a century, this unique book provides an insider's view of life inside a London workhouse in the 1880s. Originally published anonymously, a new preface by Peter Higginbotham uncovers the identity of the author and that of the workhouse he describes. The book, the only full-length account of workhouse life through an inmate's eyes, includes fascinating details of the characters who inhabited the institution and the sometimes nefarious practices engaged in by its staff.About the Author:

He has written a number of books on the subject including 'The Workhouse Encyclopedia', 'Voices from the Workhouse', 'A Grim Almanac of the Workhouse' and 'The Workhouse Cookbook'. He has also contributed to many radio and TV programmes including 'Making History', '"heir Hunters' and 'Who Do You Think You Are?'.
