Posted on May 30, 2003 - 04:58 AM by Bill McCann

All aspects of Victorian London are explored in this series. It was a period of great vibrancy, fed by an overwhelming sense of achievement as Britain led the Industrial Revolution and established her Empire. But it was also a period of great destitution and hardship on the streets of London.
