Synopsis

Victorian Town Children by Sallie Purkis

True-life experiences of four ordinary Victorian children beautifully presented as historical biographies. Through hours of research, Sallie Purkis has uncovered these original histories and retells them for the first time with historical photographs and large colour illustrations. In this book we find out about Sarah who lived in a very poor part of London, Margaret who came from a wealthy family and had many servants. Thomas who was born in the poorest area of Glasgow and Fothergill who lived in Nottingham and was sent away to boarding school at an early age.
