The Victorians : From Empire and Industry to Poverty and Famine

The Victorians explores nineteenth century society in all its colourful detail from cholera epidemics and asylums to workshouses and chimney sweeps; from the Opium Wars to London's opium dens; from the criminal gangs of New York to British convicts bouns for Australia; from body-snatchers to freak shows; from imposters claiming fortunes to women pretending to be men.

Including 180 photographs, paintings and illustrations The Victorians reveals a world of splendour and poverty, disease and hypocrisy, where fortunes could be quickly made and swiftly lost.
