Publisher's Description

With mud and horse dung filling its streets, and soot, smoke and the stench of rotten food in the air, Victorian London was infamous for its squalor. As he guides the reader through the filthy underbelly of the vast metropolis, Lee Jackson describes how reformers struggled to stem the tide of pollution, from the dustmen who made huge profits by recycling waste to Joseph Bazalgette, whose great 82-mile network of sewers still serves the modern city.
