9780140137316: London Life in the Eighteenth Century (Penguin History)

A combination of social history and reference work, this book tells the story of 18th-century London from the workhouse to the coffee-house. It devotes chapters to the health and condition of the poor, the growth of housing, immigrants and emigrants, London trades and crafts and the role of the parish. Every aspect of life is touched on, from the campaign against gin and the agitation for the protection of child chimney-sweeps to the improvements brought about by the Pavement Acts and the widespread new street lighting. By the 1780s the roots of the modern city had begun to grow and flourish.
