Dickens' Victorian London will give readers an insight into London in Dickens' day. Full-colour photography throughout will guide the reader through Victorian London. The photos will show the city in context of Dickens' inspiration for locations, plots and characters that feature in his bestselling novels. Themes such as wealth and poverty, prostitution, childhood mortality and philanthropy will be explored in the context of the 19th century. The key themes will include landmarks, coaching inns, railways, the river and the docks and the many villages that make up London today.
