Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
After I watched the PBS series "Call the Midwife" I wanted more info on the British workhouse "solution" to poverty and the masses in the nineteenth and early twenieth century. This book was an eye opening source of info...makes me even more thankful for what I (personnally) have, and how far society has come from this attempt to address the issues of poverty and unemployment in the days when these conditions were more of the norm than the exception.
